    Liquidator - possible source of air leak

    Just installed the the Liquidator yesterday. Noted increase air bubbles when I districted the flow. the leak was from the screwed in barb inlet and outlet of the flow meter. A few turns of Teflon tape before the installation might save you having to take things apart. Otherwise works fine.

    I noticed the same thing on the flow meter, and made the same correction. Took the barbs off, and wrapped a little more tape around the threads and put them back. They already had teflon tape on them, but you could acutally see the air leaking in.

    I don't think my fix completely blocked the air, but its much better than it was. I'm afraid to put too much tape on as I don't want to crack the meter.
