Epson ECO TANK "inkpad" requires replacing. How to?

Epson uses an "inkpad" to clear its printer (jets?) before printing. Eventually the amount of ink deposited in this blotter-type system fills and must be replaced. Unfortunately it seems as if replacing the inkpad is very messy and difficult. Our printer is used so frequently that the inkpad needs to be replaced every six months.

Epson charges enough to make replacing the entire unit a (sadly) reasonable option. Your opinion? Are HP printers a better option since both use 4800 dpi printing? (The HP cartridges are expensive - sigh.)

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?
