Hi all.I have one of those "S" curved airlocks.I filled it to the mak line both sides.When i put it in the bung it pushed all the water from one side to the other so I took it out and put it back in but not so tight.At least there is water in both side.But i noticed that after a couple of days the water has been pushed from one side to the other. It is in the secondary. Is it ok to do that.It is a kit orchard breezin and i did degas.Thank you

Leave it as is, it's working as designed. You have positive pressure on one side (the wine side) so it appears that something is askew.
