Use any jar into which you can place a cork with 2 drilled holes. Or, put 2 holes in a jelly jar lid. Into the holes put 2 tubing sections and seal the holes with caulk. One hose goes to the pump and one to the carboy being filled. It sounds temporary, but can be permanent. Have fun.Just got my aspirator. The description said one collection jar. Didn't come.
I don't think I would want to use it without a collection jar. I'd be bummed if I got some liquid in the pump and messed it up.
Robie,Good for you, jammer.
I would really love to have a vacuum setup. It is the only way to go!
Maybe later I'll fork over.
Well crap. Too late now. Live and learn.Dont just let it keep going like that! You can always pull bubbles. You have to watch the size bubbles, the smaller ones in the beginning are C02 and after that you are ust pulling o2 through your wine. I use it on low for about 3 minutes, then try and goup to 18 and if I can I shut it off and max the adjuster at the same time and it wil hold a vacuum that way wih the exception of the wine degassing, once I can hold 16" for 1/2 an hour its deassed. You have to have some cotten in the exhaust port to do this as resistance and you have to have enough of it.
