Posted Wed May 2, 2012, 5:22am Subject: Where to buy Gaggia Classic OPV valve in the UK?
Hi, does anyone know where can I get a Gaggia Classic Water Inlet with Adjustable Over-Pressure Valve (a.k.a. OPV (Gaggia # B0147/A)) here in the UK? I'm planning to put one in my Gaggia Baby 06 because the one it has is a stock 11bar valve and cannot be adjusted. If worst comes to worst I could also use OPV's for Rancilio's or any other Espresso Machine as long as it's adjustable. I think a simple plumbing DIY can do the trick.
The only one I can see online selling these are US based companies and shipping would be a long wait and expensive.

Bella Barista have it click here (it comes without the T-piece in the other picture). It's much better, and I think cheaper, than the Gaggia part (but also much larger and heavier - the thread on the end is 1/4"bsp to give an idea of the size).
