Topic: 1/4 vs 3/8" lines for auto-fill (2 msgs / 41 lines)
1) From: miKe mcKoffee
Terry mentions some concerns or caveats using 1/4" lines on his auto-fill 
how to. I used 1/4" copper tubing passing through two needle valves running 
from a 4-way multiple T split after under the sink filter. Just ran a bit of 
a auto-fill test. Ran Missy's "hot water" non-stop alternating between two 
steaming pitchers and dumping them into a 1/2 gallon pitcher. Didn't turn 
off Missy's hot water switch until 1/2gal pitcher full. Listened to water 
auto-filling which only lasted a couple or three seconds after turning off 
Missy's hot water tap. I don't believe there's any way possible to use Miss 
Silvia and run out of water! Oh, boiler temp bottomed out about 92f (approx 
actual) during the attempt to drain the reservoir test;-)
Just though I'd mention it.

The water line for my Lyra goes from 3/8 to 1/4 back to 3/8, the water 
regulator being my bottle neck. According to Chris coffee service and 
EPNW a 1/4 line feeding my rotary pump and 2 liter boiler is acceptable. 
2 years like this and no problems.
