Re: [IPk] Leaking reservoirs



Ooh er!   John that's a bit of a worrying problem and it sounds like it's
caused you some hassle.  I just wondered it you started to actually feel
unwell?  Was some going through at all? I assume some must have been delivered
or you would obviously been a lot worse.  Do you have to check for ketones if
this happens or only if your levels were high for longer. Is this the first
time that you have had to abandon the pump for a short time?
I hope it's all sorted out quickly.

What  sort of camera have you got there John? ( me being interested in
photography especially macro photography).
