The Alexia is a .75L SBDU, a very nice machine and in my personal opinion the top machine in the SBDU class. To fill the boiler, fill the tank, open the water wand and turn the pump on until water comes out of the wand in a steady stream. The boiler is now full. Stop the pump and close the water wand valve.
Your instruction manual should provide you with the exact settings of the lever etc to draw hot water from the machine. Follow the manufacturer instructions.
Like I said above, once you get a solid stream of water from the water wand, the boiler is full This is the same process you need to do after each time you return to normal operation from the steaming function. Every time you steam, you need to refill the boiler.
It should likely take less than 30 seconds with a bone dry boiler..... give or take a little.
