picobrew Zymantic leak fix

I have acquired some picobrew machines cheap / the original Zymantic, the Z series and even a new picostill. The Zymatic had [past tense 🙂 ] a leak, because the original seal that connects the internal bucket to the pump cracked over time, silicone don’t last forever.. This would create two issues:

  • a pretty substantial leak anytime the pump wasn’t working
  • slow pump return

I took some quick measurements and 3d designed a better than original fix, it was 3d printed in TPU.

I have linked to the part that is available to download and a youtube video so you can see it in action, thanks!
