Installation without a Moose Valve
- Hemp the knurled portion of the flo-guide for a snug fit into your blowpipe stock. Black waxed hemp is highly recommended.
- Insert the flo-guide into the blow pipe stock in such a fashion that the surgical tube snorkel aligns with your chanter stock. (see note below)
- Place the smooth end of the ridged black tube into your canister. You ready to play.
It is good hygiene to remove the flo-guide, snorkel, ridged tube, and Moose valve and wash with warm soapy water from time to time. It is good practice to inspect your drone reeds for moisture, and open your pipe bag each time after playing.
- When the desiccant becomes saturated (reaches breakthrough), the sound of the pipe will become unstable and moisture will begin to appear on the drone reeds. It is time to regenerate the desiccant.
The position of the desiccant canister in your pipe bag may be adjusted to fit your personal preference. Simply unscrew the ridged black tube from the flo-guide and trim length from the ridged end to achieve the desired result. Re-thread tube back on to the flo-guide fitting.
