Travel case for Kinu, Robot and steamer!

Question for you as I am going to travel to my parents at some point this year and looking to take my bellman, robot and comandante. Though about taking my forte bg that is overkill.

Would it be possible to install a resin filter inside (to the inlet) of the Profitec Pro 600/700 water reservoir?

I don't think there's anyone on this entire board who knows as much about water as Pat (homeburrero). I would listen to him over anyone else, if you ever see contradicting statements. Personally, I wouldn't waste my time or money with in-reservoir filters...btdt. I think you're better off finding a good bottled water with the correct mineral composition or

Lagom P64 Flat (Option-O)

If you found the zero with the motor off and got the wrong measurement because a piece a coffee was stuck between the burrs, yes. Or if you didn't screw things back correctly (in which case you should make sure to do so). Probably not with effort that is worth it. But you don't need the zero point

Lelit Bianca User Experience

Oftentimes as I gradually open the paddle in order to reach peak pressure (after manual preinfusion), the needle (showing the pressure at the grouphead) can momentarily stop moving to the right, i.e., pressure at the grouphead momentarily stops increasing (the stop is very short - instantaneous). I was wondering if anybody knows why this is happening, e.g., what happens to

Izzo Alex HX - Pump Runs Constantly

Is that from an open group? It could be a thermosyphon block or leakage from the group. You may want to keep a blind basket in the portafilter. Water should then flow almost immediately. After a shot, insert pf w blind basket, but don't fully lock, start pump & wiggle the handle the handle a couple
