Topic: easy Silvia cleaning question (4 msgs / 62 lines)
1) From: John Crippen
All,
I backflush my Silvia once a month or so.  Is there a cleaning product I can
run through the whole machine starting with the water reservoir, like I use
Cafiza in my drip brewer?  I ask because the hot water coming out of the
steam wand is starting to take on an unpleasant tinge.
Thanks,
John

I run a citric acid solution through my Silvia once a week.  I have very 
hard water.  You may not need it as often once you get her cleaned out.

I use Cleancaf from the same company.  Very good product.

John,
I backflush with Cafiza using the blind filter basket, which takes
care of most of the grouphead gunk,  and descale with citric acid.
You shouldn't be getting colored water from anything in your boiler,
unless you have some really foul tap water.
You might want to take off the shower screen and clean underneath if a
Cafiza backflush isn't cutting it.
