A reliable pressure gauge ensures the correct operating of the boiler. The appliance is also provided with a pressure switch that automatically checks the
pressure and with a safety valve 4 bars set.
It has a self-filling system thanks to a water level pump. A buzzer points out
that there is no more water in the external tank.
The appliance is provided with an iron. It is possible to mount a second solenoid valve for a second iron or a steam gun.
