]Hey all,

I had a senior moment and left a puck in my portafilter and while I was away, the Mrs had the unit on for tea only throughout the day. When I got home to my dissapointment, I saw the grouphead was a mess. Today I took the grouphead screen off along with the brass showerhead and hit it all up with Cafiza. When putting everything back together and testing my work, I noticed that I got drops of water forming around the grouphead screen and up higher where the brass showerhead meets the grouphead bell. Try as I might to tighten, it makes no difference.

I'm wondering if I'm looking too closely at this and the oils in the espresso after a few shots will settle everything back to normal again. If my description above isn't helpfull I can try some photos if need be. You can see the drops coming down the side of the brass showerhead where it meets up with the grouphead bell.
