Is this much water venting on heating up normal?

Recommended Posts

Going through a fair bit of Longhills water on my "new" Vesuvius (about a litre /day for 3-4 shots!) Noticed this water appearing in the drip tray only on heating up my machine and wondered if this level of loss is normal. It's coming from the the steam boiler vent I think? but am not sure - you can see the drip on the screen shot (not a video)

This amount of water ocurred on just one heating up over 10 mins.

Thanks for reassurance or diagnosis

On hols at the moment but will check when I get back. Presume both boilers are on when this happens?

Sorry guys  - been on hols.

@BaggaZee - yes both boilers are on.

 

@Mrboots2u  Yeah not a video - am Mac based and couldn't get anything to upload directly in any video format.

Here is a video link in MPEG4 format

No signs of any internal leakage.

Thanks for any advice.

I'll give mine a go with both boilers this evening. On a single boiler it's a 3rd of that or less.

Also, it definitely stops so I'm not concerned about overflowing if I leave it on.
