Woo hoo

So I just got my order from TGM (super delivery guys) although they left it next door (don't mind) but when I went round to collect it, she said "ah, so your Superman". I said, "don't tell anyone". So last order from TGM came addressed as "Clark Kent", this time "Superman", I wonder what next?!

Anyway back to the point...

I've just got a nano glass ware set, so any tips on making sure you keep it from breaking and keeping it clean would be appreciated.

proper dosing keeps mine clean. if im slack in dosing, i can always tell by looking at my out flow, when things are sweet, the glass stays spotless.

I remember when connecting co2 tube to my rhinox I used to heat up the tube so it was easier to connect. Should I do the same with the filter pipes?

Yeh if needs be just heat the tubing in hot (just boiled) water to soften it up. I only really find I need to do this for CO2 tubing which can be a bit stiff, filter tubing tends to be soft enough to fit easily over the glassware without too much trouble.

Its getting the stuff off that's often the problem!

I'd just add to what everyone's saying by saying, make sure the glass is room temp/slightly warm too. If it's cold I believe it'll be more brittle. Won't make it flexy or anything stupid, but run less risk of shattering it. Someone might correct me on that ;)
