I think I solved my puck errosion issue a week ago. I found out it's less if a problem if you push the screen on the coffee instead of just dropping it in the basket. It noticed the difference immediately when pouring water on the screen, the water stays almost clear now.
Splattering I only experience when using exceptionally high pressure. That's easily fixed by grinding a bit coarser.
