    OK .. Been to the back of the garage and located the plastic box that sits under the drip tray (Optional tray or drain) and the pipe you'll need is 12mm/ 1/2" ID....

    They are unlikely to supply flexi pipe as the quantity if required is down to your requirements, the cold water feed supplied assumes at best you have an isolated water supply point near your machine.

    I'm a tad miffed though as I'd thought we had left some of our coffee stuff at t'other place so I re-ordered scales, thermometers, blow me if they were not in the box when I looked for the drain attachment, you should have had this query 24hrs ago .

    Keep us up to speed with your intentions, pumped, mains and the like.

    Merry Xmas ..... Jon.

    Well already tired of spinning the machine around on a small counter to refill the reservoir, so today I ordered a FloJet with a 25ltr water bottle. Itíll be here tomorrow.

    Iím sure I was able to make more drinks with my Sage Dual Boiler between refills

    Default Looking at buying a Synchronika...

    Well Iíve got the Flojet all connected up but Iíve hit a bit of a problem where the Flojet is pulsing and the pressure gauge is fluctuating when pulling a shot. I didnít expect this.

    I have tried increasing the length of 3/8Ē tubing in a hope to increase the buffer reservoir between the Flojet and the ECM but itís still pulsing.

    Anyone have any ideas on how I can cure this?

    Not familiar with the system, but is there an accumulator in the system for stored pressure, is there a differential setting, what do the instructions indicate ?.

    You've switched over on the machine ?.
