Pasquini Livia 90 high brew pressure and valve leaking

Later models used an oring at this point under the lock nut (OR GASKET 114 VITON 7496052) Metric size 114. Since there's only cool water here a special material may not be needed. I looked up this size in the Livia parts manual found on this site under "resources". Teflon tape may work just as well

Espresso Grinders - Stuck in the Research Rabbit Hole. Please Help! Ceado E6P or Mignon XL? Any Others?

I was in the same rabbit hole for a few months and it sounds like we have similar perspectives. I also do about 4-5 espressos per day and I didn't like the workflow of SD when I tried it for a few weeks (granted my current grinder isn't optimal for that). I finally placed an order this week

Breville Dual Boiler (BES-920XL) - Replacing Steam Boiler Thermostat/Thermistor/Thermal Switch

The brownish sticky substance is normal. My 2015 BDB has that sticky stuff especially on the drain tube from the solenoid to the drain, and also the tube from the steam boiler to the brew boiler. Not sure why it's there, but no worries

They will fit the EG-1 just fine. I've seen multiple people use them in the EG-1

Profitec GO vs. Rancilio Silvia Pro X

If the Silvia is older than 6 mo., I'd ask for it to be descaled. You can't tell how well it is taken care of and you can get significant scale just in a year. Profitec is generally well made, although I'm not a fan of their support. I would think if you just generally make 2 espressos at one

Breville Dual Boiler (BES-920XL) - Replacing Steam Boiler Thermostat/Thermistor/Thermal Switch

That is indeed the steam boiler thermostat. It is self resetting thermal switch that limits the temperature of the steam boiler. It is most likely the source of your problem. Here is a replacement part from Out West Coffee it may be available from other sources as well. {link} It's possible that the only issue was the broken
