Frequently Asked Questions
|The airlock’s snap-on plastic cover has 8 small air holes drilled around its perimeter, through which O and CO2 escape. After filling the airlock with approximately 1 1/2 T of water, and then dropping in the center valve, please snap on the airlock’s plastic cover- it plays an important role in the airlock’s functioning – the airlock allows oxygen and excess carbon dioxide a way to escape, as well as keeping oxygen out of the Pickl-it.|

I bought mason-jar airlock jars thinking they would work for my grant-funded gut-healing research. Mold! Oxygen-rich yeast! I was crushed thinking my entire research project was destroyed because of the poorly designed equipment. One of my co-workers recommended your Pickl-It and now my mold-free, high-bacteria count research is back on track. Thank you for your superb product that is affordable, laboratory-quality equipment.
