  • Silvia Water tube

    Hi,

    i was just looking at a parts list for the silvia and noticed 1 rubber tube that goes into the water tank, my silvia has 2 tubes that go into the tank ..... is this normal ?

    Cheers,

    Mark.

    Hi Mark,

    Yep quite normal. The other comes from the over pressure valve; so when it reaches 9-12 bar or whatever its set to, the valve opens and the excess pressure from the pump drains back into the tank. If you remove this hose from the tank and run the hot water switch with everything closed, you should see water running out of this hose.

      I believe its normal though I dont know what the difference is. My silvia has 2 tubes and so does my Gaggia Carezza so it must be a standard thing for coffee machines.
