Subject: RO water do I need to descale
Do I need to decale my Silvia if I am using exclusively RO water? If so, how
often?

I did a few shots with Non-RO water and the difference was as shocking as
drinking RO water vs tap water.

Not if the RO is working right.

Yes. RO water needs some minerals added for best results.

I use the blue-machine RO water. After about two or three years' use I
descaled mine and the flushed water that came out was crystal clear
with no visual hint of mineral deposits.
