When do I descale my Philips espresso machine
If your machine generates a lot of steam during the brewing process
Most acids such as sulfuric, hydrochloric, sulfamic or acetic acid (vinegar) either damage the pipes and hoses in the Philips espresso machine or do not dissolve limescale properly. Filter coffee machines without a pump are an exception, as they have thicker tubes and so household vinegar is not a problem. You should therefore only use the specially developed descaler shown above.
