Bezzera Water Softener
Suitable for all models using water tank, drawing water with silicon inlet hose, they are:
Bezzera BZ07, BZ09, BZ10, BZ13, Expobar Pulser, Brewtus with Vibration pump, Leva EB61.
Certain models from Bezzera will require a modification kit to adapt the water softening cartridge, they are:
Bezzera Magica, Mitica, Galatea Domus, Strega and BZ16 with water tank.
For other brands, this will only work if your machine draws water from a soft silicone hose.
Before using, rinse water softener with clean water. It’s important the water softener remains in the water and does not dry out. If resins dry out, it will no longer be effective in softening the water.
For models that can draw water with a silicon inlet hose, like the Bezzera BZ07, BZ09, BZ10, BZ13, Expobar Pulser, Brewtus with Vibration pump, Leva EB61.
You can attach the softener directly.
Please remove the filter attachment if it’s available.
Make sure that you attach to the correct hose that draws water into the machine.
If there are two hoses, it should be the one that is longer. The other hose is for returning and should not be plugged with any objects.
For Bezzera models that draw water from the bottom of the water tank, like the Magica, Mitica, Strega Galatea Domu, BZ16, etc.
You will have to purchase the modification kit.
Replace with this which is also connected to a silicon hose.
Connect the water softener to the other end of the silicon hose.
WHEN TO REPLACE
Replacement depends on the hardness of water, most parts of Singapore water measures at approximately 7 French Degrees. If you are using mineral water or if you are using in some other countries, then the hardness might be much greater and you will have to replace the softener much earlier.
We will suggest replacing after 40 litres of usage. The softener should be replaced at least once a year and should be replaced immediately if they had dried up.
WILL IT BE COMPATIBLE TO MY MACHINE WHICH I BOUGHT ELSEWHERE
We have no idea and can’t answer that. If it draws water from a silicon hose, then most likely yes.
