Warning: Problems with water storage in drink bottles
Drink Bottles with non-continuous thread at the top of the bottle have experienced sealing problems with the “Idris” device. Use the grey adapter for most Australian Bottles. Ensure that the “Idris” device is screwed up to the first raised ring on the storage bottle. To check if the seal is made, hold the bottle and device in the vertical position, (Bottle uppermost) if no water is seen to flow from the raised sealing ring, the seal is correct. If the bottle is difficult to attach to the device, smear a little edible oil (Olive oil) on the bottle threads, then re-attach.
Included with each Idris product is the following note:
Idris has passed strict laboratory tests to guarentee even and regular watering: Warning: never fit the dripper to the clear plastic outlet when these parts are wet (this will result in the formation of tiny air bubbles, which can interupt the drip irrigation flow!) Dry the dripper and the clear plastic outlet thoroughly with paper towel whenever Idris is washed. Taking this simple precaution, you can be sure the product will always work exactly as it should.
