Repair Service needed in Brighton. Please help.

Recommended Posts

Hi all, 

I own an Alex Duetto III for 6 years now and it's been great up until earlier this year where I needed to replace the pump. I installed that myself with difficulty. It was fine for about 2 months. Then last week, it started leaking. It would leak the whole tank of water while pulling a shot. I looked up the internet and tried everything. Descaling, cleaning, etc. 

I think it's time to get a professional in. My questions is, do you know anyone in or around Brighton who can help? 

Thank you so much for reading. :)

Thanks for your replies. 

When I'm pulling a shot, the water is going straight for the tank - to the boiler - and out again. Like the water from the tank is just passing the boiler and out to the drip tray. I'll try to post a photo.

I can't remember where I put the expansion valve output in the design, I'm pretty sure I specified it to go back to the tank? In the MK2 Duetto I think they may have added vacuum breaker feeds to the drip tray, not sure it was a long time ago. I'm even wondering if it's pouring out the vent valve?

Nothing here...

Hi. Thank you so much for your reply. I contacted them 2+ weeks ago but never heard back. I since managed to fixed it myself with help from people on this forums. Just curious - how much did it cost you? A few hundreds? Thanks again :)
