Hello, I have a faema compact espresso machine that I just bought and have a couple of questions. The water pump I have is battery powered. Will that give me enough water pressure for the machine? If not what would I need to do? Second question when I bought it she said it needed a $10 gasket. It came without a portafilter so I bought an E-61 portafilter and it seemed to be very sloppy and could fall out. Did I buy the right one? Are there any installation requirements for the gasket or does it just pop in? Any help would be appreciated, thanks!
