About how many shots between backflushes?

Post by RonMJ » Sat Oct 24, 2015 6:14 pm

I was wondering how frequently people backflush their machines. I use mine on weekends only (no time on work days) and make 6 - 10 shots each weekend and I back flush once a month with cleaner. Thoughts?

I do about 3-4 pulls a day and only back flush about once a month. So you certainly don't need to do it more often than that.

I backflush with water every day after the last shot.

I only use cafatza about every 2-3 months

I make about 3 doubles a day, and backflush with cleaner about 1/month.
