DeLonghi, Water Impurity Filter for Coffee Machines, DLSC002
Special care for special moments
Using De'Longhi Water Impurity Filter and replace it regularly will keep your coffee machines in perfect conditions, also extending its working life. The filter helps reducing limescale, resulting in better coffee quality too. 98% of the liquid in the cup is made of water, as a consequence, the water used to make coffee must be clean and fresh.
The water we use every day is rich in calcium and magnesium, which determine how hard it is. The harder the water is, the greater the threat. Accumulation of limescale over time deteriorates the hydraulic circuit and the heating elements of your devices, reducing their efficiency and increasing relative energy consumption by up to 30%.
Compatible with models:
- De'Longhi ECAM models - coffee machines
- De'Longhi ETAM models - coffee machines
- EC680 and EC800 pump Espresso coffee machines
Your Care and Cleaning Calendar, Best For De'Longhi Bean To Cup Coffee Machines
Every Month: Clean Spare Parts
Every month - even sooner if needed - remember to clean the brewing unit/infuser, the coffee grounds container and drip tray. Clean inside the machine and the water tank. Also, don't forget you can use the Automatic Cleaning Function on the milk container, after every milk beverage.
Every 2 Months: Change Water Filter
Changing the water filter of your coffee machine is recommended every 2 months, The Water Impurity Filter:
Every 3 Months: Descale
Descaling is recommended every 3 months. If you own a De'Longhi fully automatic coffee machine, the display will indicate when the machine needs to be descaled.
Please Note: time may differ according to water hardness, settings and number of coffees produced per day, machine alerts when descaling is required.
Tips on Water and Milk
98% of the liquid in the cup is made of water, as a consequence, the water used in the coffee machine must clearly be fresh, as well as flavourless, odourless and colourless.
The other factor that influences the quality of water is the water hardness (due to the presence of calcium and magnesium mineral). The ideal water hardness is approximately 9 French degrees (or 90 mg/l).
To create high-quality milk froth, make sure the milk is fresh, used straight from the refrigerator at a temperature of approx. 5°C. This will ensure to reach the ideal temperature when heat is added to it to create the foam. With LatteCrema System, we recommend using semi-skim milk in order to obtain the best results in terms of foam texture, volume and taste. Don't forget to clean the milk container after each use, with the Automatic Cleaning Function.

Weiss Ich immer noch nicht. Also Ich konnte geschmacklich nie einen Unterschied feststellen, MIT oder OHNE.? Also hab Ich Bekannte dazu interviewt, und habe Ihn nun schlussendlich-weggelassen. Da Bekannte und Fachleute (Verkäufer und Reperateur), zu hartes Wasser oder zu weiches; keiner und nichts sprach für ein klares Pro-und die Kaffeemaschinen sind angebl. schon 10 Jahre.-meine noch nicht; also?
Hab Ich mich der Umwelt zuliebe entschieden, darauf zu verzichten.
Weniger Müll ist ein starkes Argument-heutzutage.?!!!
Und die Maschine wird ja sowieso regelmässig entkalkt.
Und etwas weniger Sondermüll schadet ja wirklich nicht.?
Vl. hab Ich ja den Einen od. Anderen hier jetzt auch zum Verzicht gebracht.
They also encourage changing it more often than I would have thought necessary, but that's hardly a surprise. You pay more! I have used our newish machine for some months now and replace the filter 50% of the time suggested and still get great coffee.
Edit: have now had the machine two years, come next month. Still works fine. Switched to compatible filters a year ago and still everything works great. My Engineer's ear tells me that the grinder is going to go before the rest of the machine, but we'll see. When I bought I told my wife that if it lasts less than 2 years I'll be mad, 2-4 happy, 5+ impressed. Now available for slightly less than half the price I paid.... :/
However, my ECM 860.M machine is a replacement for a ECM 850.M that stopped working, and I had similar problems (mainly with the auto milk frothing feature) start to reappear with this 860 until I started religiously descaling and replacing water filters on time. This regime appears to be helping to keep the machine working better for a number of years now and so I am now happy to buy these filters often despite the cost.
Have also just started to use the ‘milk clean’ solution for the milk carafe, which also ‘seems’ to help, hard to tell, so if you have hassle with yours, might be worth trying.
Therefore reluctantly recommended! Marked down by one star as surely these don’t need to be quite so expensive?
Hope this helps
