Frequently asked questions

  • As a general descaler, durgol universal is suitable for any household appliance. You can use durgol universal for filter coffee machines (i.e. open systems) with no problems. For use in high quality, modern coffee machines (i.e. closed systems), we have developed durgol swiss espresso, which generates considerably less foam than durgol universal. The limescale is removed as the water runs through. It is important to limit the amount of foam generated in order not to cause excessive pressure in the narrow ducts and valves.
  • Limescale inside the machine increases the brewing time and impedes the heat transfer, thus lowering the quality of your coffee.
  • Over time, limescale accumulates inside the machine and eventually blocks it entirely. It also has a corrosive effect on the components of your coffee machine. These effects can damage the machine.
  • Limescale increases the energy consumption of your coffee machine, which places a greater burden on the environment.

We recommend that you descale your coffee machine regularly and before excessive amounts of limescale can accumulate – ideally, every three months.
=> To ensure the highest quality of coffee and a long service life for your machine.

  • Tip: pour used descaling solution or any leftover product into your toilet bowl and leave it there until you next use the toilet. This has the following advantage: acid residue can dissolve limescale and urine sediment in the toilet.
  • All empty product bottles must be disposed of in domestic waste, even though all durgol bottles are similar to conventional PET beverage bottles. Unfortunately, manufacturers of products sold in PET containers but which are not intended for consumption are not eligible for membership of PET Recycling Switzerland. This means that the durgol bottles must be sorted out before the recycling process, even if they have been rinsed thoroughly.

Three expert tips for coffee machine maintenance

  1. Descale your coffee machine every three months with durgol swiss espresso 

  2. In between descaling sessions, clean the water tank with washing-up liquid to prevent bacteria from accumulating. 
  3. Avoid household remedies, such as citric acid or vinegar, as they are less efficient and usually do not remove limescale completely.
