DIY CO2--problem with check valve
So, I used the method with the syringe bubble counter/separator, but water from the 'bubble counter' is leaking down into the tube that connects to the 2L bottle. I know I put the valve in the correct orientation.
When I blow through it, no air goes through, but for some reason, liquid is still leaking through it. Any ideas why? I bought 2 check valves, and they both do the same thing. I squeezed the 2L bottle to double check that aI put the valve in the correct orientation, and I sure did. I saw lots of bubbles in the bubble counter.
What do I do? My mixture isn't producing any bubbles yet though; it has only been a couple of hours.
