I recently got an Aqua Medic bubble counter at my LFS. Problem is, I cannot figure out how to get the thing open. The instructions that came with it are next to useless. I am afraid that I might break it if I try too hard to open it. Anyone have any tricks for opening these things? Thanks!

Should just be able to pull the top plug out. Its going to be tight, just try to carefully pop it out.
Thanks for the reply. I could not seem to get a good grip on it anywhere, and I did not want to use pliers for fear of breaking it. Honestly I was not sure if I needed to twist it or what. I ended up wedging a knife in between the cylinder and the top and slowly lifting it, which eventually worked. They certainly make those things pretty solid.

Don't know yours, but my generic BC was glued together I just got water in there through one of the tubes.

I did manage to get the top off of the bubble counter finally, it was just REALLY stuck on there. It has a gasket in the fitting that I thought was threads at first, so I was not sure if it was twist-off or pop-off. Thanks for all the replies.
