You can use both elements at the same time if you choose or run it on just gas and all you need to do is power the water pump. On electric only mode it performs the same as any other electric espresso machine. The beauty of these machines are that you can run them from a battery & inverter and bottled gas which means no need for a generator.The machine uses less than 500w when in gas mode, though you need to add on whatever your grinder uses. New pump and pump head. New group head solenoid valves.
Never used with hard water. Ive just fitted new group head seals and its ready to go, it works perfectly with no issues at all. If you need advice on fitting please message me, happy to help.
