Seattle Coffee Gear Store asked: Why did you choose this?
Caroroll R: this was the best price for a filter that fits my machine, Talea Plus. I also only use filtered water in the machine so there is a double filtering. Apr 6, 2012
A shopper asked: This replacement filter isn't allowing water to pass through in my machine. Any thoughts? Oct 24, 2012

Ron v: I have found the same problem when the filter is brand new and still dry inside. If you soak the filter in a pot of water for a few hours before installing it, the problem disappears. You will need to weigh down the filter with something to keep it under water since they float really well when new. Try to orient the filter in the water so that the water intake vents are nearest the surface of the water and the air trapped inside can bubble out the vent. Oct 31, 2012

Jackie H: I would recommend 2 things. Make sure that you soak the filter in water before you attempt to put in the machine. This allows water to get absorbed in the filter to help the transition. Secondly, when you initially put the filter in your machine, use the hot water bypass and it may cavitate briefly but then the water begins to flow through the filter. This works pretty consistently for me. Oct 30, 2012

Jeannine T: I've never had that problem, and I've used probably a couple of dozen since we've owned our Gaggia Swing-Up.
Perhaps the one you have is old stock and the filtering compounds are hardened. Try removing it and giving it a good shake or smack on a hard surface. Also, these filters need to be soaked for 30min prior to installation to receive the best results.
Hope this helps!

Scott h: I immerse mine in water (on its side) for 15-30min minimum before putting it in the machine. I shake it a good bit during this time as well. The filter seems to get so much air trapped in it that the water doesn't flow. Even then it can sometimes be 15-30min more IN the machine before the water is flowing right. Oct 31, 2012

Teri KStaff: Make sure the Aqua Prima filter is soaked in water and also seated firmly in place in the machine. I haven't heard of issues with water not pulling through the machine once a filter is attached, but if you are still having trouble, Saeco may best be able to advise you.

Virginia G: We haven't had this happen, but we're very careful to follow all the instructions, making sure there is no carbon or other stuff around where you seat the new filter, and soaking the filter to get out all the air. Using the descaling product is also important.

Sorry we couldn't be more help!

Caroroll R: I have used a number of these and have never had a problem of any kind. Will water pass through when you remove the filter? I assume you have already tried that. Unless there is a flaw in the manufacture I cannot think of anything else to try other than a new filter. Oct 30, 2012

Dan C: Hey, I'm having almost the same thing... With the most recent filter I am unable to steam or get hot water from the steamer but I'm still able to make coffee, although I get significantly less output per cup. Oct 30, 2012

Allen M: The only problem that I've had with these fitters is they come loose from the water tank. I would try another filter and send that one back. Sorry I can't be more help. Nov 4, 2012

jon d: I'm quite sure it doesn't fit ALL machines, but it fits ours and it's alder than yours. Just look at the one you have and see if the water reservoir's recepticle would take the filter. Key is to let the new filter soak, submerged at least an hour. Call Gail...she knows everything:-)) Jan 22, 2014

Bernadette V: I have a Saeco Incanto Classic, so i really can't say if it will work on your machine. The packages doesn't list models, only stating that the mount must match. You might check you user manual to see if it shows this type of filter an mount. Hope that is of some help. Jan 21, 2014

Librarian: You would need to check the model number of your machine. It fits the ones that are basically old Starbucks machines sold as Saedo.

Question is - does it look like your old one? If not, then no.

I bought it for our Saeco Super Vienna. We are using water from a water service 5gal water cooler. Although the water is filtered, I wanted the machine to stay tip top. I know the filter is pulling out minerals since the machine heats up very quickly from a cold start and I do not hear the rumbling sound from the boiler like you get when there is scale buildup. It fits right in the water reservoir at an angle. No problems.

Used with Saeco Incante and the water reservoir is narrow so it is difficult to get the thing installed. Ther is another filter available that costs more, but it is narrower and taller and much easier to install. For me it would be worth the few extra bucks.

Pros:
Works just fine

Cons:
Difficult to install
