Hi Dale, welcome to HB and I'm just a few miles South of you in Palm Coast these days, and I'm using my Cremina and Kafatek Conical daily until I get into my new home and get all my machines set up. I have a couple of ideas to offer since it sounds like you haven't ventured from using

Too much water during preinfusion after replacing E61 mushroom in Expobar Brewtus

La Pavoni 1996 pressurestat adjustment

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

Now that being said, that should give a rough feeling where you stand in line, but isn't an absolute metric IMO. For example, today's newsletter they said their total amount of
