Recently my Brewtus started giving me trouble.  When I pull a shot the pressure won't build past about 4 bars of pressure.  I am guessing its OPV but i really don't know.  everything sounds fine otherwise and the pressure does build when back flush.  I am not handy and cant find a tech that will come out to check it out in the dc area.

So, if someone is comfortable with what should be a small fix for the handy person. this is a great deal.  I only make 1-2 shots a day.

$950 (paypal please) includes up to $50 worth of shipping cost.  I will have it professionally packed at UPS at my expense.

I would like to sell it by Thursday, otherwise, I will send to WLL to have it thoroughly gone through by them.  I will also include the porta filter and baskets that came with the machine and my bottomless PF and my calibrated tamper.

I included a link below from last year because I want you to have all the background info possible.  I love this machine and the excellent coffee I make with it but i am not handy and just not capable of doing anything beyond basic cleaning type stuff.

Many thanks for your interest.

Billy

Have you called WLL? I know the different Brewtus versions received different OPVs, some of which are more robust than others. I wish I lived near you because we could just try hooking up another pump without an OPV or something. Can you email me some pics? How's the water hardness in your area?

Yes, i called them.  We have really hard water here - I'm sure a contributing factor.  I have video of what happened but really fixing it myself is out of the question.  The last time i opened the thing up i just wound up sending it to WLL.  When i got it back it was actually better than new.  Very pleased with their work.  attached is a pic.  dont know if i can attach video.

thanks, as always CG folks are very helpful.
