    Just wondering what everyone uses in the bubble counters, liquid wise?? If you use one that is.

    I've seen water - but seems to evapourate over time

    vegetable glycerine

    Mineral oil.

    Any others??

    Cheers.

    I just use water, it does evaporate but I just fill it up when it gets close to empty.

    Yeah, and water's pretty cheap as well... :D Tighten the fittings on the bubble counter, replace the seals or put a bit of Vaseline on the seals (assuming they are rubber - If they are silicone seals use silicone grease.) if the evaporation rate is too high.

    Cheers,
