if so, can i ask a favor?

can you set, say 93C (or 200F) and check if it allows water to get to the piston for a shot?

for a video i would be mega-grateful.

thank you!

At least in the La Pavoni Facebook group I have seen people with PIDs on their machines, and I know there were people here too but I'm not sure if they are still active or have their machines anymore.

I have a plug-and-play PID, where I mount the prob on the boiler. If you set it to 93C, then there is no pressure in the boiler, so, no water enters the grouphead. You need an air pump to pressurize the boiler to push water into the grouphead. I did that, but it seems my pump fittings were a bit loose and I can not seem to be able to pressurize it well to enforce much water--still, I could make a shot with low volume. I have seen on youtube people do better than me in that regard. Here is such example:

I know fransg used to have one.
He surely is very experienced with LP and PID steering.
But I haven't seen him active in the forum lately... :)
