Normally your Epson printer dumps it's "head cleaning" waste ink into a set of pads in the base of the printer which after a while results in your printer demanding a service (see below). The waste ink bag (WIB) kit provides all the parts you need to redirect all the waste ink into an external waste bag.
Most Epson desktop printers have been built with a printhead that is capable of lasting decades (with proper care) but it has one achilles heel in it's handling of waste ink. Epson printers waste considerable amounts of ink into its waste pads which sooner or later need emptying. When the printer decides it's full it will flash up a message "Parts inside the printer have reached the end of their service life"
This kit provides you with the necessary kit to redirect all the waste into a sealed, strong bag which is easy to empty and re-use with minimal mess. All you need to do when you get the dreaded Sevice required message is reset the waste ink counter and you're good to go.
The Epson 1400 adjustment utility is provided free for customers purchasing this kit and is sent by email. We do not sell or provide this utility separately.
This kit does not include a comprehensive reset tool for other printers (it doesn't exist!) but links to information and resources are constantly updated via our website. The most popular (the SSC utility) is easily downloaded free here: http://www.ssclg.com/epsone.shtml
This kit will also suit other single waste tube printers (as below) but has a longer (30cm instead of 15cm) tube which may be unnecessary in most cases.
This list is not exhaustive, so please message me if you are unsure.
Note: Asia, North American & European models differ from UK models in model number but are often the same printer type (eg: C88 in Europe = D88 in UK)
There are already a number of "Waste ink tanks" available on Ebay, and elsewhere, that provide a rigid container but none are completely self contained or mess free as they all require a vent hole for air to escape as the waste ink replaces it. This kit completely removes the need for a vent by providing a number of carefully thought out features:
The system also takes into account some very important points that MUST be considered when installing a waste ink tank of any kind.

Excellent quality and perfect performance. I have a 1400 with a CIS and, combined with this kit, I am not afraid to waste ink from head cleanings. The bag is perfect and completely unspillable, making it much more practical than a box in my opinion.

I have an R1800 with a CIS and as anyone with one of these printers knows the head cleans are a far too often. This is an excellent solution to the waste ink problem. Recommended
