Can all espresso machines work off a h20 pump as long as there is enough psi. I am looking at a semonelli. Is this a good machine ?

Most espresso machines have a maximum water pressure of 4 to 6 bars. If you can't plumb water to the machine, it is a good idea to pre-pump water from a reservoir to pressurized holding tank. Then connect the tank to the machine or just pump straight to the espresso machine.

You can just hook a hose to your espresso machine pump and put the other end in a water tank. But from what I have seen the pump wares out a lot faster.

Nuova Simonelli is a good machine, but so is La Cimbali.
