Hi I have a problem with the used Livia 90 that I purchased from a member here and was wondering if anyone knows how to fix it.

Basically water is leaking around the grouphead and it is not coming from the gasket/portafilter connection.
Here is a picture of the peak.

It's just a copper tube from the boiler to the proprietary  group. Might need tightening, tube might have fractured, but it should be an easy enough fix.

It was a really simple fix.
Just needed to tighten some loose screws which became loose because I was banging the group too much (the filter basket kept sticking).

Thank you everyone for replies!

I am glad it was so easy I had visions of broken welds.
