Subject: how to fill the Vibiemme Domobar super water tank
 

I'm about to buy an used  Vibiemme Domobar Super espresso machine.

But I have one question. I don't have the possability to connect water from the tap to the machine so I need a tank in the machine.

When I ask the seller in mail if it has a tank he tells me that there is a tank on 2.7 liter and that the tank fills with water by a bowl beside the machine and the machine sucks the water to the tank.
My question is, is this true, for me it sounds like the machine sucks the water to the boiler and not to the tank as I read that the boiler is 2.7liter and that the tanks are usualy 4l.

Could some one be kind and awnser me how do I fill a Domobar Super with water in the tank?

a NORMAL vbm has a  in the back of the machine which you can fill up with a pitcher, water bottle, a water line directly with a little cock valve etc etc
then the boiler get filled from the water reservoir with the autofill system

if your seller has a version of the VBM made after the year 2010 with a full size motor and pump (versus the vibe pump like the model mention above)
then you can choose between a dirct connect to the water line or to use the water reservoir as the model above

Sorry, but I'm not sure what you mean, could you explain little more or are there any photos?
I'm really thankful that you are helping me

From your description, it sounds like it is a plumb-in only machine. There would be no reason to have a bowl externally located for a reservoir machine.
The "tank" sounds like the boiler. You need one with a "reservoir."

Now, you can run the plumb model using an external bottle and an on-demand pump like that which are used in "caravans" (RV's here). Google "Flo-jet pump."
You want something like this.
