1. Is it really important to descale my steam station? Why?
Yes. It is very important to descale your steam station regularly as scale deposits could reduce its steam performance, spoil the soleplate and leave marks on fabric.
2. How often should I rinse the Anti-calc collector of my steam station? How should I understand that the Anti-calc collector has to be rinsed?
Every time your anti scale collector has to be rinsed an orange “anti-scale” light on the control panel starts blinking to tell that.
3. Should I rinse the collector when the Anti-calc lamp doesn’t flash?
No. Only the anti-scale lamp indicates the necessity of rinsing the collector.
4. The Anti-calc light started blinking. Should I rinse the collector immediately?
No. You can finish your ironing session and rinse the collector then.
5. I’ve just finished my ironing session. Can I rinse my Anti-calc collector?
No. Before descaling and cleaning your generator you must let it cool down for at least 2 hours to avoid any risk of burns.
6. I don’t have much calc in my collector. Is it normal?
Yes. It might just mean that your water is soft and doesn’t contain much scale.
7. Can I add any descaling substance to the better rinsing of my collector?
No. It is strongly forbidden to use any descaling substances (vinegar, industrial descaling products, etc.) when rinsing anti-scale valve: they could damage it. To remove the scale it contains and to clean the collector properly it is enough to rinse it under running water.
8. I’ve already rinsed my steam station but the anti-scale light is still turned on. What should I do?
To turn off the orange anti-scale light you should press the “reset” button on the control panel.
9. I started my ironing session and there’s the steam leaving from the anti-calc collector. What does it mean?
It probably means that you didn’t screw completely the anti-scale valve into its housing and so it is not tightened correctly.
10. I have a water softener at home. Do I still need to descale my steam station?
Yes. Scale could be present even at the purest water.
