The simplest and most affordable water softening solution for any reservoir espresso machine. Drop one of these in the water tank for months of perfectly softened water.
The OSCAR softening pouch is an ionic exchange water softening pouch that can be used with any espresso machine running on a reservoir. The pouch replaces calcium and magnesium ions with sodium ions. The OSCAR pouches are rated to last between 4-6 months, depending on machine use. We recommend checking the water from your group head every couple of months to ensure the pouch is still active.
