Speidel Fermenter airlock
« on: July 09, 2014, 05:15:32 AM »
Has anyone noticed that the cap on the airlock "floats"? I've noticed that it doesn't close completely and that it moves up and down once CO2 starts coming up out of the tank.

There's a snap on cap? Or are you talking about the standard air locks?
