EPSON R3000 Waste ink tank
« on: March 21, 2013, 07:47:17 AM »

Hello,

I need some help before doing some silly manipulations. I want to know if one of you, over here, have already modified his R3000 to have an external waste ink tank. This printer is excellent but purge quite a lot so I really want to install this tank.

Thank you for your answers.

I have installed this waste ink system from OctoInkJet.com in my R3000 and it has worked very well.

It's easy to install....remove a couple of screws and attach the plastic tubing to those in the printer. Then route the tubing out of the printer and you are set to go.

Be careful not to plug the tiny air hole in the lid of the container as doing so will cause the ink to back up into the printer.

It's easy to clean too. When you remove the container from the tubing, it is self-sealing so there are no leaks. Just rinse out at the sink.

They are located in the UK but ship almost anywhere.

Hulyss - same concerns for me. Did you buy the waste tank and, if so, what is your experiences?

I've installed the waste bottle (about 120ml) from inkjetmall.com

http://shopping.netsuite.com/s.nl/c.362672/it.A/id.4784/.f?sc=18&category=-118

I just emptied it for the first time recently.  Easy to install and easy to empty.  Very glad that i've had it installed.

12.95 us dollars.
