Re: [IPk] bubbles bubbles bubbles!!!

Hello Janet
We have had lots of phases of bubbles and I find what seems to bode best for
- to prefill and after some time in the fridge it seems to help form one
clear bubble from champagne ones etc and It clears easily on the prime.
-Twisting the reservoir so that the lubricant on the o-rings is equally
distributed before filling
-Filling to a max of 1.8 onthe first o-ring. Any more and guaranteed bubbles
-keeping the plunger straight as i handle it, as any element of sideways
pressure seems to make for bubbles  later on.
Best of luck :O) have a great holiday!
Mum to Grace 6yrs pumping 18mths
