Are there any home machine which have a built in line for water.

Has anyone retro fitted their silvia to accept a water line?
thanks

You can modify any pourover machine with a float valve installed in the tank, which will keep it filled. You can buy these in hardware stores, or get a complete installation kit, with instructions, at Chris Coffee.

Ordered my "Tea" with the float valve installed; plumbed to water line with softener and carbon filters (replaceable) with tubing and fittings all supplied from Chris; very easy and neat install, machine automatically fills!

Unfortunately the vibratory pump went out, last Friday (machine a month old), however Chris's sent out a pump (overnight) and  I installed, today. No problems and I'm drinking an "Americano" decaf as I type.

My Tea has been done a little differently.
The place I bought it through did it.  I have not had time to hook it up and see how it goes yet, much less pull it apart and have a look inside, but it has a new waterline comming out the back which I just have to hook up to the mains water (via a commercial filter in my case).

I am not sure what will happen to excess water (the stuff that used to flow back into the tank - perhaps it still does) but the setup looks good and I should have fresh water comming in cold (not heated in-tank by the boiler).

I'll post pics and details when I can.

The Wega Lyra's can be hooked up directly to a water line, as I believe most home e61's models.
