looks like lime buildup
    #3287374 - 10/28/04 12:22 AM (12 years, 1 month ago)

alright my pmp is in good werking order aside for the slight epoxy smell but ive got some pins in there and they dont seem contaminated but there is a very thin film on the little baby caps that kind of reminds me of like a lime buildup from water (at least thets what it looks like) it is a very thin film and it wipes off at the slightest touch should i be concerned?? sorry i have no cam or i would send pics :confused:

Would be smart to test the pH of your pod water to make sure...I just bought a ph tester on egay it is gonna help me a lot.

pH of water??

Did you know that pH of distilled water can drop as low as 5.7 just from CO2 in the open?  With extra CO2 in the pod, you can see it going down lower. :wink:  But then buffering effect of other ions in the pod can also keep the pH up...  very funny thing that pH...

oui.. that was in response to KronnyQ...

Clean it up a bit, and before next set of cakes, sterilize using bleach(1/25) and rinse well. Then try the bottled water(you know.. the machines that sells 10-25cents a gallon) Then you'll have your answer about lime scale.

Don't worry about pH of the water. Too many things in there to know what's going on with water. Only time pH would be of concern is for some casing mixes.

Make sure you use clean towel to clean it up. Keep your bare fingers away from stuff in your pod.

sorry.. big big big mistake. I'm so so sorry. I was thinking on the tub not the caps. Discman, thanx. I almost hurt his babies...

No, that's perfectly normal... let them be.
