Topic: flattening out wooden drawer bottom - Restoring UNIC Diva - WAS: +grinder question (6 msgs / 174 lines)
1) From: Brett Mason
This is great help!  I will try to put some of it into practice this week.
I took apart my UNIC Diva last night to try to clean it out.  WOW -
What Gunk!  Lots of "sandy" corroded remnants inside the water pipes
of the machine.  So I am going to try to fill it up and empty it out
tomorrow night (wife out of town...)  Here's the plan, clean out the
valves tonight, and then reassemble, except for the grouphead.  Move
the Diva (105 lb) to a chair, Diva propped on Window ledge facing out,
screen removed.  Turn on plumbed in water source valve, and let all
the junk run through.  I have a flex tube on the supply tube, and will
try "tipping up" the back of the machine so gunk can go into the
garden....
How's that sound?
Appreciate the help and dialogue...

That sounds like a wife out of town moment. :)
Just have plenty of towels handy...
Wouldn't it be easier to set it up next to a sink and add a hose to
direct the drainage to the sink?
Will

Actually, it sits next to the window already, and that is the easiest
way out...  I will take the thought on towels!
Has anyone done the clean the tank procedure and can offer advice on that part?
Thanks,
Brett

If that thing falls out of the window ... do you plan
on catching it?
Either the suggestion below, or if I remember
correctly from your photos, there is a sliding glass
door to the left of your setup that goes out to the
deck.  Move it out there, on the deck, and extend the
plumbing to it ... perhaps from the garden hose.  This
may be a lot more safe and you won't care what leaks
where.

Okay ... I remembered wrong.  If you don't have one,
borrow a hand truck and take it outside.  I'm not sure
your window will like the 105 lbs leaning on it.

The UNIC is 105lb, and about 24 inches deep.  Only about 3 inches will
beoutside the Window.  If it falls, aint nobody gunna catch it.  Have
to dig it out of the hole in the ground though....
