    If/when your change to the Synesso occurs, get in touch I'd happily take your GS3 off your hands.

    It's funny you mentioned that I have been thinking that. The brewista scales are good, but feel a little like a mismatch.

    How do you flush the group without constantly wetting the scales? Does it matter if they are exposed to temperature and water like that regularly?

    I've always wondered the same. I have the scale sitting on top of the drip tray, and always slide it to one side when flushing the group.

    I cover the charging port with a small piece of tape to reduce risk of corrosion

    They're not waterproof, though splashing from below is most likely to cause ingress. Acaia sell a base specifically to avoid them getting water inside when used in the drip tray.

    That said I've never had any reliability problems caused by water - just the minor annoyance that the touch sensitive buttons don't work when wet and by default they change to a different mode when they detect water (I'm sure this is configurable, but I've never bothered to change it as I just keep them dry).

    It certainly wouldn't pass any IPxx rating as it's not remotely sealed against water ingress (that would require friction between the base and upper, which isn't an option for obvious reasons) - but they do note that "the electronics within have a protective spray coating to shield against moisture" which although not "waterproof" as such does seem to work, so far at least. But I wouldn't like to test that by getting water inside the case regularly.

    Semantics, I guess...

    I've made a couple of small updates, and added an IMS screen you can't see. I don't know if it's any better though I'll have to keep trying and see if I get more consistent pours.

    Hi JohnA, How tight do you do up the shower screen screw, it starts to flex the IMS screen if more than finger tight? Thanks.

    I've been using the IMS Competition Shower Filter MA 200 TC, the Teflon coated one, and find it really good. I do mine up pretty tight.

    Did you find it changed the shape of the screen in the centre when it was done up tight? I don't know if it's likely to change the direction of any of the water flow if the screen isn't flat? Thanks Logga.

    No it doesn't change the shape on the screen, it just tightens up nice and flat to the group head.

    What is the name of your shower screen Jono?, is it the right one, it shouldn't flex just hand tight.

    It fits snug, there is just a slight flex in the centre, maybe my screw is the wrong one? I've nipped it up and it actually seems to spread the water better I'll leave it done up and see if it's better tomorrow. Thanks a lot for your help. This is a pic of the old one and the new IMS one.

    My new addition which replaces my much loved Silvia. I think this one's a keeper. I now just need a Fausto to replace my White M2M grinder.

    Mines the nearly the same Jono. I left it slightly above hand tight on my gs3 and it works fine.
