Waiting for Breville to fix a BDB under warranty that I just picked up... can't wait to try this mod!

(What I found that required repair)

Copied from "lancelot)"Several months ago, I switched my machine back from mod 2. to mod 1.a. because I found it more intuitive for me to control. However I was frustrated that so much of my good water was going to the drip tray. So I set out to find a way to route the hot water waste back to the tank. After thinking about drilling and melting and all kinds of fabrication tactics I opened up the machine to have a look. I found, as we BDB moders have so many times, that the BDB is almost made with a solution for this mod in mind."

Hmmm...venting the hot water back into the reservoir...does that water pass through the area of the group that is flushed during daily cleaning? If one doesn't clean, would that mean some "brackish" water would be deposited into the reservoir?
Note: I do both a PF wiggle AND full 20 second back flush at end of day.
Cheers.

Still...I clean my tank/reservoir every 8-10 days, as the Pavlis formula seems to make things a bit "slimy on the inside walls and such.
I freely confess to not completing my mod. I prefer the knob to operate as is...just not sure which way of the ways to go. Where is the "correctly" #'rd link with the descriptions on this thread? Apologies for the bother.

Han man, don't worry about it. The water and pressure that is "vented" comes right off the boiler, not off the puck. AND, while you are venting pressure during the shot, there is still positive pressure at the puck. As a precaution, I just make sure to shut the valve at the same time that I stop the shot.
