John: I have been pumping now for 5 weeks and was experiencing the same
problem.. air in the line...It was suggested to me to use room temperature
insulin and to draw back the needle until you have a large air bubble on top
of the insulin, then push up slowly.. this is working for me.. hope it does
the same for you..
Yours in Pumping,
