Soften YOUR Water to Save Your Espresso Machines with Reservoir

The Lelit In Tank Water Softener needs to be recharged once every 35 liters or less water passing through or minimum once per month. Fits most Lelit espresso machines and other brand espresso machines.

This water softener helps remove 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, the Lelit water softener needs  should be replaced once a year minimum. Replaces PLA930S.

      Will this filter fit a MaraT? I have a reservoir/tank with a small round fill hole. The pick-up tube and the nipple on the filter seem to be the same size. If so, what size hose should I get to make an adapter?

      It never hurts to over-soften.

    4. Hello I have a ROYAL espresso machine, Model is Reale. Currently my machine has a mini water softener that looks similar to the MC747. Do you know if this MC747 or the Ascaso will work better for this Royal machine? Thank you.

      Sorry, we are unable to answer as we do not sell Royal espresso machines at this time, and would not know about the size of the hose or the opening of the water tank. We also do not know which will work better as we are not familiar with their water softening cartridges.

      Yes, this water softener will work as we sell them individually. PLA930S is just a kit of 2 of them.

    10. If my water's TDS is 120 and the CaCo3 is 87 or so will this be sufficient for my water to not cause scale? Or should I simply move to distilled water with TWW packets?

      Better to use the water softener and recharge MINIMUM 2 times per month at this level.

    12. Is this compatible with the Lelit PL41QE Anna? It looks too big to fit into the water tank.

      Asked by Michael Hsueh on July 21, 2020 10:49 pm
      A It is the smaller of the two Lelit filters. It is the same filter that came with my Victoria and this replacement fits it perfectly. So I think it should.
    14. For a new filter MC747, does it need to be charged in salt water? The instruction reads to just soak it in regular water for 5 min.

    16. Lelit has stated that the MC747 filter is NOT rechargeable. 1st line indicates that it IS rechargeable and gives specific instructions on how to recharge the filter. Which position is accurate?

      We have inspected the resins and they are the same as our other water softeners. We have thousands of customers who have done this recharging. The main point is to replace the resin cartridge every 6 months to avoid build up. In addition, this stems form commercial water softeners used on espresso machines in coffee shops. Furthermore, does one replace all the resins in a whole house water softener? No, there is the addition of salt. You can read more about this. Hence, our belief is different than Lelit's determination.

      However, if you feel their point is stronger than ours, then please go ahead and replace the cartridge every 35 liters as we would love selling you extra. However, we will not like you filling up the landfills with more garbage if not necessary!

       

    18. From the description it seems like this just needs to be recharged every 35L. When is replacing it warranted (other than obvious damange, leaking resins, etc)?

      Replacement required every 6 months, just like refrigerators. The reason is to avoid build up of mold, fungus, or bacteria in the cartridge. Even though the water passed through a vessel at greater than 180 degrees F kills most of these, we prefer not to have a reservoir growing these organisms. In addition, the water reservoir should be hand washed with non-abrasive dish wash detergent and sponge every 2 weeks minimum.

    20. Is this one appropriate for the Lelit PL60PLUSTD/120, or should the 70L version be used? They both look similar on pictures, so unclear which one was packaged with my machine.

      Sorry, this smaller one is not adequate. Please order the 70 liter version.

      A With respect to previous responder, they work just fine in my experience , although for a shorter time. Fitting are correct, and the water line is sufficiently long
      A The 70 liter version is the one supplied with this machine; but I've found that the 35 liter version fits and works well.
