I moved and took the Brewtus with me.  I had a 3/8” connector to the water supply at the old house. The new house has a 1/4” supply behind the refrigerator. I’m guessing if I reduced the 3/8” to 1/4” it might not be enough water pressure for the Brewtus.  I do have an adjustable regulator on the 3/8”.  Before I go adapting it to 1/4” to find out it’s not enough I thought I’d ask here if anyone is running theirs off 1/4”.

I do. Used a John Allen adaptor to bring it down, as I run the machine off a reverse osmosis filter

I'm likely one of the least knowledgeable people on here, but my understanding is that the Brewtus doesn't need pressure, just water to be available. Before I could plumb mine, I just stuck the intake into a pitcher of water for a couple of months and it drank what it needed. 

I do the same now to descale it... Just put the intake in a pitcher of deacaling agent.

What is a John Allen adapter?
