Canon Pro 1000 and ink waste

I have been shopping for a 13x19 printer that will see daily use. I want a big gamut. I had convinced myself that the way to go was the Canon Pro 1000 (Canon Epson because I want the option of using third party inks to save money). However, I've seen a rant on Facebook about how this model is defective. The poster claimed that that for every ml of ink he used in printing, he used another ml of ink in "cleaning". In other words: 50% waste. He says he has experienced this on two different Canon Pro 1000s.

Does anyone have any experience or suggestions they can offer?
