Bilt OSCAR 90 Water Softener

by Bilt

Bilt Oscar is an innovative descaling device for domestic and office espresso machines.  It paasively removes calcium, magnesium and impurities from water through the use of ion exchange resins.  Scale buildup is the main reason for espresso machines to fail prematurely and the Bilt Oscar is the easiest way to improve the quality of your coffee while improving the longevity of your espresso machine.



  • Size: 100mm x 120mm
  • For 1.0-2.0 liter reservoirs.
  • Operates between 5 and 40 celcius
  • Capacity: 800 to 1200 double shots or 8-12 months


Specification Sheet

How to Use

The optimal use of Oscar requires few and very simple steps:

  1. Remove Oscar from its transparent and protecting wrapper;
  2. Once the plastic has been removed, wet with cold water to activate the silvered granules;
  3. Lay down Oscar into the empty water tank. Fill with water up to the desired level.

As water interacts with the resin microspheres it will be subjected to the osmotic and magnetic softening process, starting to transfer calcium and magnesium ions giving back sodium ones.

great option for an expensive water system

without a huge investment you can ensure your expensive coffee machine doesn't scale up from hard water. You of course need a machine with a water reservoir as we have but these pouches seem to do the trick.

Great recommendation

Went down to the store and was recommended I give this a try to remove the hardness in the Edmonton water. I placed it in the tank following the instructions once I got home a left it overnight to work. The next morning the difference was almost instant. Without changing anything else my espresso was much better. Thought I'd have to go buy filtered water or some other more intensive treatment kit in order to get good water, but that does not seem to be the case. Will be replacing this when it comes time in a year and recommending to any of my friends who are looking to improve their coffee water.
