    Quaha, Nemox, Imat pump switch operation after steaming

    Gene Cafe Coffee Roaster $850 - Free Beans Free Freight
    Hi,

    I have just received my Quaha JR and have read a couple of different suggestions on maintaining water in the boiler after steaming.

    1) Open the steam valve and turn on the pump switch until water flows through the steam arm
    2) With the steam valve closed turn on the brew switch until water flows from the group head.

    Do these both fill up the Boiler equally? As soon as water flows is the Boiler full enough?

    Also, I am assuming it is a bad idea to leave the steam valve closed and turn on the pump switch.

    Cheers

    use option 1

    if you think about it in terms of where steam is in the boiler (at the top) and that is where the steam pipe would draw from. So if you fill till; water comes out the wand your boiler has to be full.

    the GHead might draw water from the bottom of the boiler (or close to so it does not "run dry") there fore filling the boiler by just running the water will not "fill it"

    hope that helps, I am glad you asked :)

    I think a bit of searching and I have answered my own question:
    (from a similar thread related to Silvias) Let the water run through the steam wand = primed boiler.

    I am assuming Silvias and Quahas are similar enough for this to be correct for both.

    Thanks Maheel,

    I just read your message after posting my above comments.
    Makes sense to me.
