I love my CISS Printer

I learned about CISS Printer thru my friend Ellen Lacson 2 years ago and I have been a HAPPY user ever since. I converted all my laser printer in our office and our home to CISS because it's cheaper to buy a new CISS Printer than buying an original Laser printer replacement Ink.

Q. What is CISS?
A. CISS stands for Continuous Ink Supply System. It is the means of supplying a continuous flow of ink to the print head of the printer without the need to change cartridges.  

Q. What are the benefits of using CISS?
A. The main benefit of using CISS is the running cost of the printer. Now that the CISS itself has become very affordable, and buying ink in bulk has never been cheaper, the cost of the equivalent amount of ink in a cartridge is now pennies rather than pounds. Even compared to the cheapest compatible cartridges on the market, you are only paying a fraction of the cost.

Secondly, the convenience of never having to change the cartridges when they run dry - because they never run dry! This means you can carry on printing and refill the CISS at the same time. No need to stop in the middle of a long print run.

Q. How does it work?
A. Special ink cartridges are installed in the printer that holds a small amount of ink. These cartridges are connected via small silicon tubes to an ink reservoir tank. With ink in the reservoir tanks, all the air is removed between the tanks and the cartridges. As ink is drawn out of the cartridge by the printer, a vacuum is formed that automatically pulls more ink to the cartridge via the tubes. Therefore, all the time there is ink in the reservoir tank, ink will continue to flow to the cartridge as required by the printer.  

Q. What can go wrong?
A. Due to the simplistic nature of the system, very little can go wrong if just a few basic things are taken into consideration:

i.) All joints and seals in the system are completely airtight,
ii.) There must be no air present between the reservoir tank and the cartridge,
iii.) Ink must never be allowed to run dry, and
iv.) Air must be allowed to enter the reservoir tank ABOVE the level of the ink.
