Subject: What is your procedure for emptying your La Pavoni?
The manual specifies one approach during the initial preparation. Do
you continue to follow that procedure or have you chosen a different
one?

Thanks.

To get back on topic (!)
Mine is the Pavoni Professional and for convenience it's sited next to
the sink, with my other machine (the wondrous Sunbeam 6910) on the
other side.
And with the Pavoni, a quick inversion is all it needs from time to
time. I don't empty it more than once every two or three months, as
our water here in the Blue Mountains (NSW Australia) is pretty free of
minerals.

Anthony - Thank you, thank you, thank you.

That is the the kind of valuable information I was looking to receive.

Like the urinal the hospital staff insists that I use for the next few days,
my LP gets emptied after each use. There's a possibility of sediment in
both, plus they'll stay sweet smelling if they're kept clean & dry.

"us?" You seems to be all alone with totally useless comments! While
others have made valuable comments yours have been USELESS!

Maybe it's time to come out of your little cubby hole and attempt to
make really important contributions -- as difficult as they be. Of
course based upon your comments in this newsgroup I suspect it will be
impossible.

Siphoning will NOT get all the water out -- especially the crud at the
bottom.

you can't lift 15 - 20 lbs?

It gets out all but a small fraction of an inch of the water. And there is
no crud at the bottom. It is quite easy to see into the boiler with a
flashlight to see what's going on. I can get a clear view of the heating
element and the bottom of the boiler. One of the reasons I drain it weekly
is to get rid of the minerals left behind in the water from steaming. I
descale it when I see a buildup (which is pretty minor) in the boiler. I
would turn it over at that point if I saw anything to flush out.

As to not getting all the water out... there are many of things in life
where one does not remove all of the fluid when it is changed. A good
example is the normal oil and filter change on a car. A significant amount
of old oil remains in the pump, galleries, lifters, etc. Getting most of it
out is what matters; that which remains is diluted by the new oil.

Aside from the weight, there's also the matter of routing the cord again
when I put it back. It's just not worth the trouble considering how easy
siphoning is. After a decade of continuous use, if there was going to be a
scale buildup problem, I would have seen it by now.

Comments such as yours are all too common on the web; especially this
newsgroup. You obviously have few friends, interests and a total lack
of quality education. With such low regard for, or knowledge of,
punctuation, capitalization and spelling combined with an over usage
of sentence fragments you should have objected before permitting them
the luxury of graduating you from elementary school.

I presume you're talking about the lever machines. I siphon the water out
with a piece of plastic tubing. That gets most of it out. If I need to get
the rest out (to work on it), I just turn it upside down.

I change the water in mine once a week, siphoning out what remains in it and
refilling with fresh water.

I have to review the DVD and manual once again but my original concern
was if other owners used the builtup steam to expel the water or let
the unit cool before emptying by other means. After thinking about it
I'm of the opinion it would be best to let it cool and then empty.

And, since you're apparently capable of turning it upside down, why would
you want to go through the bother of siphoning?

Because the machine is relatively heavy and I would have to move it from one
side of the kitchen over to the sink. It is a lot easier to siphon the water
out right where it is.
