Water regulators are not expensive, why risk damaging your machine? You had started another thread asking why your pump wasn't working, but you didn't mention the information about the regulator in that thread
Didn't realize it until after the fact... Found comments here and there regarding inlet pressure needing to be reduced, found instructions for other machines saying to reduce to a max of 5bar (75psi?), and I know my water pressure is above that.
OK, I have a regulator, filters, & fittings on order. Guess I'll have to wait. You know, I had an older, experienced friend who just passed. I would be doing a project, and I'd say "Earl, I'm going to do it like this." He'd say "You could do it like that" Time passed and some of those projects didn't work out so well. On the repair of one, I asked Earl what I needed to do to fix it. He told me something quite different from the way I had originally done it. I say "Earl, why didn't you tell me that in the first place?" He says, "Well, you didn't ask my advice. You asked if it would work. And it worked, for a while. If you had asked my advice, I would have told you the right way to do it". So, now you see that maybe I have only learned enough to ask, and I will take your advice. But, you know, I could do it like that!
Thanks for the advice. Really.
