Silca has posted a support page (https://silca.cc/pages/superpista-support-page) to help owners identify affected pumps. Until Silca can ship out replacement parts in the new year, an interim fix involves unscrewing a bezel on the gauge and removing the lens (explained on the support page).An issue has been discovered with a sub-component of the SuperPista that can cause the gauge to suddenly fail. This failure poses a potentially dangerous situation to the user.
We have identified the cause of issue and traced it back to insufficient anti-corrosion treatment to a sub-component inside the gauge. Rigorous testing has shown that the sub-component will corrode over time causing air to leak into the gauge housing. In rare circumstances, air has become trapped inside the housing causing the gauge to burst due to pressure mounting while the product is in use.
