Did you use PVC
pipe instead of the one they gave you? Thats probably what I will have to do.
And do you think I can use that stuff they sell at hardware stores to loose very tight jars?
Ok so this has happened to me as well!! I can usually get it loose by trying to tune the actual collection cup itself to start it. I put just a tiny little bit of vasoline to lube the o ring.
pipe fits perfect no need to glue it just pressure fit it. A good tip to figure out depth is try to get the end of the pipe about an inch which is about the length of your finger from the nail to the first joint. That way you can adjust the cup with out trying to guess where it is.
Ok just the tip half has bubbles. That's good. If the valve piece keeps popping out call coralife and have the warranty a new one. Until then get it close to open but not full and put a zip tie on it to keep it on till the new one arrives
