    water behaviour question

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

    after 2 strong lattes tonight it was time for a little clean up and then discovered that w/o the shower screen in place, the water exiting the middle hole of the group head comes out faster / harder and tends to flick about the place while the water from the four perimiter exit holes is calmer.

    hope the photo sort of helps in my description.

    im wondering if this is normal(ish) behaviour or is the pressure / temp too high?

    cheers
    aaron

    ahem...cough....(silence)....
    feeling a little silly...replaced the shower screen and realised (and why I ask did this not occur BEFORE posting) that the middle exit hole with the problematic water is kinda like plugged by the screw.... :-[

    BUT the water DOES NOT come out straight from the four remaining holes..should it?

    It doesnt come out "symmetrically" on Silvia either, but its a moot point since its all going to hit a tightly packed puck jammed against the shower screen.

    thanks reubster

    so i should worry less about assymetrical, messy water and worry more about interest rates? :-?

    the shower screen is there as a diffuser, so worrying about interest rates is prob a better option :)
