The label on the bottle says to dispose to hazardous or special waste collection point. Does that mean that even after it is diluted with water and run through my machine it should be dealt with as hazardous waste? Instructions in the manual and on the bottle don't clarify. Thanks.
DaniD on Nov 2, 2013
Best Answer: I'm afraid I maybe of little help, or comfort, to you. We never noticed the instruction to discard with hazardous waste so unfortunately we placed the container in with our regular recyclables. Thanks for bringing it to our attention. We poured the used water down our kitchen sink; again, thanks for bringing this to our attention. We will do further research on it. As far as getting any residue from the descaler in your coffee, I cannot be 100% sure. However, the process takes a few hours and much of that time is rinsing. You will need to refill the reservoir a number of times before the process is complete. Like I said, it may or may not comfort you. I'm sorry I couldn't be of better assistance.

how many cleanings does the 8.45 fl. oz. contain? I don't see that in the specs - how much do I use per cleaning? Thank you.
A shopper on Apr 29, 2013
Best Answer: The full 8.45 fl. oz. bottle needs to be used for each cleaning.

Per my Saeco Syntia instruction book, "Pour the entire content of the Saeco concentrated descaling solution into the water tank, and then fill the tank with fresh drinking water up to the MAX level. Place the tank back into the machine...."

(I've found that the Syntia machine's instructions are much clearer and detailed than the more general instructions that come with the cleaning solution.)

Hi! I have a Via Veneto Saeco machine, and was wondering if this is the right cleaner as our unit came with a powder packet for the first cleaning session? Please advise.

Leslie K on Aug 30, 2014
Best Answer: This Saeco Descaler is for descaling, and the packet that came with your Via Venezia is also very likely a descaler. We recommend descaling once every 2-3 months to break down minerals/scale that may be present in your water and built up in the boiler over time. If your machine came with a powder descaler then the only real difference is that our Saeco Descaler is a liquid that you don't need to dilute with water before using. Hope this helps clarify!

Why can't we just use vinegar?
A shopper on Jan 31, 2014
Best Answer: It is much better to use a descaler like this Saeco Descaler rather than vinegar to descale, as vinegar can harm the internals of your machine over time by breaking down the rubber pieces. Vinegar also doesn't have enough acidity to do the job as well, and it is also more difficult to get rid of the smell of vinegar. As an alternative to the Saeco branded descaler, you could also use the product Dezcal.

Restored my machine!Review by Cristine

This decalcifier saved my machine. My excellent Saeco Aroma made it through 7 yrs only being descaled once until it finally gave up and broke down. On the advice of an authorized repair facility I purchased the Saeco descaler. They recommended purchasing the brand-specific descaler. Combined with a replacement portafilter-also from SCG (a well-intentioned friend took it apart for the worse), I am now making delicious espresso and crema. Going forward I'll descale every 2-3 months. it's critical. Very pleased with my purchases from SCG and will be back here in the future for future purchases. (Posted on 8/28/2013)
