    How often to change the water in a Gaggia Classic

    Hi all,

    I was just wondering what the popular opinion is re changing the water in the container in the Gaggia Classic. I use filtered water but even after a week it starts to look not so nice. Changing more often than that seems a bit of a hassle?

    Depends on the capacity of your tank
    If it is a small amount every other day would be OK

    I would go through a tank full on average every 1.5 - 2 days and I have a 4 lt tank

    Lots of hot drinks & clean flushing in that routine :)

    Well I have a KA Pro Line that utilizes a 2 liter tank. I use maybe 1 liter a day and top it off daily with fresh cold water. I do like to remove the tank every few weeks and scrub it because no matter how clean your water is there will be some buildup over time. Not only will you have better coffee, but the pump and plumbing will be cleaner as well..... Later!
