  • Long(ish) term machine storage

    Hi all,

    So I'm lucky enough to be heading to the USA soon for 7 weeks, and am wondering what I need to do with my machine while away? I will obviously give it a full clean down, chem backflush etc. But do I leave water in the tank, or completely empty? Pf in or out etc.

    Any tips appreciated, thanks. It's a v2 evo rocket btw, if that matters.

    Cheers,
    Mitch

    I asked the question a few years ago regarding a commercial machine for not using for 3-4 months at a stretch. Best advice was give it a clean leave water in it and flush the boiler water a couple of times (It has a 21L boiler) This has worked well for me now for a few years. I leave it away PF out not that the group gasket is that likely to stick. On a domestic with a tank I would leave the tank empty but boiler full.

      Just make sure there are no mice around, for some reason they love to choose your wiring to sharpen there teeth (from experience on multiple machines in our warehouse)
