Simple answer: No.
However, if you use distilled water you won’t need to descale the steamer. Our Cirrus No.2 has a coating on the inside that prevents residues of minerals and limestone to get stuck in the machinery. If you use your steamer in an area where the water is hard, it is a very good idea to use distilled water as much as possible. If you’re uncertain of the water quality, we recommend that you ask around- or use distilled water to be on the safe side.
How many water tanks (Cirrus No. 1 and 2) will I be able to fill in 1 bottle?

No, please don’t. We are working on a scented steam water, but up till now we haven’t succeeded in creating one that doesn’t affect the steam quality and the machine parts of the steamers.
