Various Parts & gaskets have been replaced where needed including brand new steam element & group head element just 2 years prior. It has been rebuilt then tested over a period of roughly 8hrs while being set up with a very expensive Scace 2 & Fluke device. The pump pressure has been set to 8.2 bar as per David C. Schomer because I believe that this is the optimum pressure to make great espresso but of course happy to change it to your desired pressure if you wish.
The dose settings have been set using the Scace device also with the temperature being set as close as possible to 203.5°F. I will add that this is a very thermally. I have set up many machine. Over the years & have noticed that some S1.
Are alot more temperature stable than other. This is one of those machines. 5yrs older & notice that this ones.
Main boiler & group head boiler have a special coating on them that mine doesn't. This may account for the improved thermal stability. It may behave like one being mechanically/electronically very good but has the usual wear & tear of a used machine to it's exterior.
I would however describe it's overall exterior condition as good. Hings to point out are light surface scratches & scuffs which aren't that noticeable, both portafilter handle's also have scuffs/scratches to them with one missing an end cap. This is obviously a plumbed in machine so will need to be plumbed to a standard appliance connection valve via the pipe supplied.(see photo) unless you hook it up to a flojet pump which would mean you can use the 5.
