Hi guys, So i bought another gaggia and its the first one i've looked in that is in need of descaling. I've got the boiler and element out, the only gaskets i can see which i will replace are the teflon one and the rubber one. Does anyone know if this model requires the triangular card one as well?

Thanks in  advance!

From a little bit more research it seems as though i only need the rubber o ring and that the teflon washer shouldnt be there... Can anyone confirm this?

If the heating element is original it should take the rubber o-ring (use the silicone one) but the heating element that uses the teflon is a direct fit replacement and if it was ever replaced, it may require the teflon gasket. For the few dollars it costs, buy both or remove the element to confirm. Good luck
