How to Descale a Heat Exchange Machine
Single boiler heat-exchange machines can be easily descaled at home. Since descaling is not the primary cleaning method for prosumer style machines it does not need to be done frequently. Descaling can be done on a 3-4 month basis, or whenever the machine starts to display flow issues. If hard water is being used in the machine, or the machine gets heavy usage, the machine may need to be descaled more frequently. The video above describes the process for descaling a single boiler heat-exchange machine.
