Noticed a comment by Caliblacksmith abt bottle feeding. I thought I was so smart to have drained the unit into a bottle since my machine is not located in my kitchen. How does one do a bottle feed (besides resetting the autofill)? Is it just a large water filled bottle on the floor or is there more to this? Thank you.

First off, I highly recommend changing your thread title. Your question really has nothing at all to do with your particular machine, but rather, about plumbing a plumbable machine from a jug. Changing the title will help people know what your really after and probably improve the chances that people with expertise in your area of interest will select THIS thread to view. I suggest something like, how do I plumb a machine from a water jug. Alternatively, this topic has been discussed many times over in other threads, so perhaps you'll find exactly what you need through the search tool.
In short, yes, you put a 5 gallon (no, it doesn't have to be 5 gal) jug of water under the counter. Either use pretreated water, or run the line through a series of filters and softeners and then to an external pump. Adjust the pump pressure as desired, perhaps install an accumulator between the pump and your machine, and then you're good to go. All parts are available at several online espresso supply stores - such as Chris' Coffee Service or Espresso Parts, for example.
. Always remember the most important thing is what ends up in your cup!
