I have come to the conclusion that I am the only Pico Brewer here at this time and I had to descale my Pico Pro yesterday morning. Usually a couple of hours of work guarantees me around a hundred liters of brewing. Seems like a pretty good deal to me. Until your back goes out! THEN, it's a real B*tch! So of course, I am now descaling my Pico Model C. Same back. Same B*tch! THIS is what divorce prepares you for. Nothing but a pain in the ass! Of course, there is the benefit of being able to brew up to TWO HUNDRED liters before they need it again! Upon reflection, life is good. Just sayin'.
