Over time, limescale deposits can build up, depending on the hardness of the water used… and this risks damaging the system and the correct functioning of your capsule coffee machine.
Prevent coffee machine limescale with softballs
One of the possible prevention methods is to use Softballs, a patented long-term system for softening hard water and preventing limescale build-up in coffee machines with water tanks. The substance present on the spheres reduces water hardness, but without altering its calcium and magnesium content, which is important for health. They thus help to prolong your coffee-machine’s efficiency and lifespan, and maintain the quality of your coffee.
Using Softballs is extremely simple: just place a bagful inside the water tank and fill it up with drinking water, and then turn on the machine until the tank is emptied. At this point, the machine will be fully efficient and will function correctly for several months.
Each pack contains two bags: we recommend changing bags every three months. Softballs is compatible with traditional resin or active carbon filters, and does not release chemical substances.
If you want a complete optimal maintenance for your coffee machine, we advise using Softballs combined with periodic descaling operations, preferably carried out by dissolving Oxytab tablets in the water tank.
