Topic: cleaning la pavoni? (3 msgs / 57 lines)
1) From: Benjamin VerHage
So I finally unpacked my new to me La Pavoni Pro. Looks like it was closed up/boxed up for a while and it wasn't dry when it was put away. Boiler looks a little gunky inside so I'd like to clean/flush that out as well as all the lines, etc just to make sure there's nothing funky lurking in there. I have some Joe Glo, but I'm not really sure how to use it on an espresso machine. If anyone has any suggestions on how to use it, or something else to use to clean the machine I'd appreciate it.

I use a mix of lime away & espresso machine cleaner when I start taking
apart lines, etc.

Try the directions on the JGlo container. You can make your own blind filter
if you don't already possess one. I don't know about the LaPavoni Pro, but I
assume the spring or lever pressure will limit the hydrostatic pressure
below the point where the castings will fail.
I could have avoided the Grim Barista syndrome on my Crapesso Leaks if I had
not followed the JGlo instructions in an arbitrary way. After the third of
five recommended blank brew cycles, I was already getting a hydrostatic lock
downstream of the pump.
The pressure relief valve didn't. The pump is stronger than the advertised
18 bar, that is far beyond the 9 bar that is the accepted espresso brewing
standard. So, what? With a functional relief valve, you could even use a 60
bar automotive power steering pump with s/s internal rollers and body.
5HP motor, 220v, 17a, or 165,000 ft-lb/ min could drive it to power 20
groups simultaneously. "Have Hotsy heater available..." The Hotsy can stand
235 bar, temperature is your choice.
