I need to regularly slightly move my DE1XL on my kitchen counter. Water leaks/pours over the lip of the water tank when I move it, especially if it is filled with 1.5 or more litres of water. Will the Decent lid solve this?
The Decent stainless steel lid comes with 2 tubes to be connected to the DE1. As per Decent: Two short silicone tubes are included to attach to the front water return ports under the Decent machine. This is to prevent water from building on top due to the spluttery nature of those water ports.
Is this tube connection necessary if I am not using the refill kit?
Also FYI, as it will cost $90 USD ($125 CND) for the lid, plus another $75 CND for shipping, what are the pros and cons of using an after market lid like this: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/1455875593/
I am also thinking of putting slider pads on the back feet (only), to facilitate this movement. This will result in the machine being not perfectly level. Would this be a concern?
