Check that tubing is fully pushed onto inlet and outlets and that tubing has a snug fit. Swivel seals can leak if fluids are forced through it with high pressure from a syringe, either manually or via a syringe pump. The seals are under pressure from a spring and should reseal immediately. Reduce flow rates if this is a problem. Clogged swivel. Discard and replace. Warning Do not autoclave. Use 1. Set up mount above the cage to give animal the greatest range of movement. CM375BS counterbalance recommended for most shoebox cages.
