    So with the bottom plugged when I breathe in with the hydratube and the water rises that means the crack is letting air in right? The water shouldn’t rise at all if the bottom is sealed?

    If you pull on a HT with the bottom of the bamboo plugged, water will rise a bit as you lower the air pressure by sucking on it.

    Totally normal.

    @Stu is correct. Remember that if pulling from an HT, there is air in the HT already below the water. You need to place your mouth on the top of the bamboo and make a seal, then pull in.

    The only leak I had one time was from a poorly ground 18 mil gong joint on the unit.

    The hydratube rocked back and forth too much (some rocking is necessary so the joints don't lock in place, but too much wobble and there will be an air leak).

    I recently discovered (thanks to FC) the miracle that is PBW. Has anyone tried cleaning their bamboo with it?
    Does the red caps the evo comes with make a water tight enough seal around the the bamboo air intake?

    I've used warm alcohol on a warmed EVO and a long wooden Q-tip (swab). I close off the bottom with a tight balloon: an EVO condom. I have a cork that fits the mouth of the bamboo, but I've never needed to scrub the bottom chamber. A balloon would work here, also. You could try the red protective caps. Just over a bowl or sink.

    I have not, but I only, only, only use flower in my EVO so I have not found the need to clean the bamboo.

    I use PBW as my go to for cleaning flower rigs. However, it does not work that well for concentrate reclaim (really, nice clean vapor condensed on the sides of the rig) clinging to the walls of my rig. Don't want to waste that stuff so I most often use Everclear (ethyl alcohol) and evap to a tincture. If really grunged up, ISO for 'trates reclaim.

    Well, perhaps, brother...but I use different devices for concentrates....mostly enails. Liger, D-nail Halo, and @710Coils wonderful quartz bangers and coils.

    All good....just don't need to use the EVO for 'trates so prefer to keep it clean and ready for flower at which it excels, IMO.

    Cheers

    There was a PBW craze here a few years ago (or more), might have even been on the Cloud OG thread. Some of us also put together special cleaning rigs because at the same time there was a GAS epidemic. I for one went down these rabbit holes, spending way too much on glass and working much too hard on my cleaning regimen.

    I am now lazy (and older, a big part of the reason why). I clean my glass and ELB's only when performance - or hygiene - mandates it. And simpler is better, so 91% ISO is all I use anymore.

    I don't remember if the red cap creates a seal. Actually, I don't even remember where the red cap is; probably in the attic.

    I've got a suspicion that pouring solutions into the electronics is not the way to clean them. To keep liquids from entering the electronic housing, consider using a sandwich bag: make a hole at a corner and slip over bamboo. If you are truly paranoid, secure with rubber band.

    Great info and feedback from everyone :tup:.

    @O-G-Reg, I've seen a number posts where people use the red caps to seal and clean the bamboo, though I've never tried it myself. If doing that I would try it but set up a cleaning station so that if a cap leaks the solution goes into a tub or bowl without any contacting anything else on the EVO.

    In general, cleaning the EVO, has been very smooth and simple here. I have 99% ISO, 420 cleaner, some eco dish soap (non-SLS) and PBW. I also have that inexpensive ultrasonic cleaner for the glass EVO nails. I'm still sorting out what routines and materials work for best for me and will report what I find.

    So far I soak my dry and wet mouth pieces in a zip lock bags with hot ISO and then let dry (doing so at least once a week). I'll use a blow dryer if I need a quick dry. I've found it helps to keep the water pieces on the cleaner side of things rather than waiting until it gets pretty dirty (which is more work). Using distilled water in the hydratubes has helped avoid deposits. I rinse out my ELBs with hot water after every bowl or so and then do a quick ISO soak every 4-6 uses (~ once per week) or so (followed by a hot water rinse). I've been cleaning my VapeXnails after every use. I have a number of the glass nails so I tend to use a clean one for every use, and I expect the ultrasonic cleaner with a good cleaning product to make short work of cleaning a batch of nails.

    So far I haven't needed to clean the bamboo beyond ISO and 6" cotton swabs.

    I break them B-4 They need cleaning?

    @Baron23 back in the 70’s foil & wooden stick match + fast food straw was all we had?

    2013 I learned a new way?
    Sugar leaf we clean are feet during harvest !
    Not science however INDIA made the honey oil & NORTH AFRICA for HASH.

    I digress?
    EVO for flower is great to me.
    I use a SELECT 250 most however the QUARTS Nails as awesome !
    @CANtalk VAPEXHALE clean’s the bamboo perfectly?(Do U mow your own grass?)

    For us, it was hot knives and a hurricane clear-glass lamp shade for capture. I do believe my lungs are silver lined. What didn't kill us made us stronger. Except for the time I glued my nose to the tabletop.

    @ataxian, true and good point :). In general I like to be active rather than passive where/when I can and enjoy the related benefits. I do mow my own lawn, plus plant/tend my own garden and cook my own meals. OTOH, everyone's different and I embrace the melting pot of humanity :cool:. It's been great to read about others and share cannabis/EVO experiences :leaf::peace:.

    If you can get just plain caustic that's even better. PBW appears to just be diluted/low test caustic. You need a license to buy caustic, but it's pretty easy to score some nevertheless. Breweries use tons of it and my neighbor, a union electrician, gave me a big bucket of it. It's SUPER cheap unlike PBW. Best for cleaning lipids, but works well on protein and carbohydrates too, especially considering the cheap price.

    I studied chemistry in college so I use ph as a cleaning tool for chemical cleaning!
    Mechanical cleaning you can do as well if you know how.

    Be careful no to get sucked into marketing hype!
    I have more water pipes than most not to Bragg because I was a minor bird once!

    EVO is calling be to be CIVILIZED

    Excellent @wall :tup:! I'm still relatively new to the EVO as well, loving it and sharing the enthusiasm :nod:.

    Speaking of good vapor, the EVO excels at both flavor and density :luv:. Even with small fresh loads at 320F the vapor quality is so impressive. Up at a half ELB load or more, there are clouds, I don't even bother with 400+F temp flower draws anymore with this evape. 380F full ELBs produce monster clouds with the EVO :bowdown:.


    Friday with the EVO is definitely awesome, these occasions previously inspired this meme from me :lol:. Enjoy the weekend everyone :leaf::peace:!

    Is that true? Really?

    Wow, and I thought I lived in the height of HOA nazi's when I was in Boca Raton (well, they really were the height of home owner association nazis, tbh)

    You can't cut your grass.

    This pretentious gated community I lived in did NOT allow you own and park a pickup truck in your driveway and did not allow motorcycles even though the roads were city maintained.

    Glad I got out of there.
