Topic: Andreja plumbing in saga continues. (2 msgs / 46 lines)
1) From: Jim Gundlach
I left off on the Andreja plumbing saga by finally getting it plumbed  
and the low tank water warning alarms turned off to only have out  
water go out yesterday afternoon.  We still had no water this morning  
so I made a couple of cups with the French press this morning.  Then  
about 3:30 this afternoon the water came on and after a little more  
than half an hour of running the water to let air and muddy water run  
out, the water ran clear, or almost clear anyway, and was up to  
pressure while the Andreja warmed up I was ready to pull a shot.    It  
just so happened that a new thunder storm was building up over us  
about then and as I filled, tamped, locked in  the portafilter, and  
just as I pulled the lever, lightning struck.  It was one of those  
close ones, the clap that tapered of into a house shaking rumble came  
about a fifth of a second after the light from the bolt.  The power  
went out and I thought this plumbed espresso machine experience is  
just not meant to be.  But, about two seconds later the power was back  
on and sweet little ol' plumbed Andreja started pumping out a 80+%  
crema triple shot.  I took it to my computer desk and sipped it down  
while I restarted the computer and went to take out the rest of the  
lowered tile ceiling that partially collapsed on us in bed at about  
3:00 this morning.  But that is another story, and I have some roof  
work to do.  But the Andreja is plumbed in.

Gotta have that 'spro to give you the energy to do those repairs!  
Condolences on the ceiling/roof damage but congrats on getting Andreja  
plumbed-in.
