Re: [IP] Bubbles in the Reservoir

Okay, here's how I conquer any thought of bubbles in my cartridge. 
The best thing to do is to fill the cartridge at night and let it set 
out, putting it in the pump in the morning. Then the bubbles gas out 
and are just gone by the time the cartridge goes in the pump. And 
when you're filling the cartridge originally, a good steady filling 
and emptying of the cartridge, about three or four times does away 
with most of them as well. During this process it's pretty easy to 
tell when bubbles are gone. I've never been bitten by air bubble 
problems in 20 years now and I'm totally blind. <grin>
Now, of course, after having spouted off and acted oh so smart, I 
just filled my first cartridge with Apidra tonight. I certainly 
didn't hear any air bubbles, so we'll see. <lol>
