Kinda-sorta-maybe. With a small boiler SBDU you use such a high percentage of boiler volume in everday brewing/steaming it's going to be significantly less important.
When I had my Pasquini Livia 90, I flushed less often -- like the VBM story. But I got a lot more finicky when I switched to the Cimbali. It's reassuring to know that Marty, another Casa guy, is doing what I do for similar reasons. Can I call you "bro?"
FWIW, I'm very interested in hearing from guys who have HX machines with large boilers -- like an NS Apia, or an Elektra Sixties, e.g. -- at home.
