Posted Tue Jul 24, 2012, 7:54am Subject: Water tank for a commercial coffee machine
I have recently acquired a restaurant two group handle espresso machine. The machine is a beast and I have plugged the water pipe into our mains and have gotten it running.
Unfortunatly the machine is so bit it doesn't fit anywhere on the kitchen. But we have a large space for it in another room but with no water pipe.
I'd really like to get a couple of water tanks underneath (or beside) the coffee machine to get it working. (One for waste, and one for water). Will this work? And I've had a quick look at water tanks but there are so many different types for different uses but none that stuck out as "right" for a coffee machine.

Yep, flow jet or Surflow, both pumps will work well with a bottle. In the U.S. a 220v line can also provide 110 if you wire it correctly so the voltage of the pump should not be a big deal. You can drain into a seperate bottle, that is what I do even though I do have my machine plumbed into the house water system.
