This water softener (MC747PLUS) is for the Lelit Bianca (PL162T) and Lelit Anita espresso machine models only. For all other Lelit espresso machines, please use MC747.
The Lelit In-Tank Water Softener needs to be recharged once every 70 liters, less water passing through, or monthly.
The Lelit In Tank Water Softener removes limescale causing agents and minerals, such as calcium and magnesium, from the water. This softener does NOT filter the water for chlorine, other mineral particulates, etc just as most water filters do not soften the water.
Please remove this softener when descaling to avoid damage. In most cases, you should replace the Lelit water softener every 6 months (updated May 31, 2019) at minimum. Replaces PLA930M.
Please note that water softeners are not returnable under our return policy.
