    Wet test help

    I just got a bacharach wet test kit from out of a van in a local junk yard 30$. The kits complete but the co2 fyrite tester is missing its fluid and the diaphragm has a hole in it. The question I have is how much fluid is needed on a fresh fill? The fyrite is a 0-20% co2. And also is there anywhere on long island that stocks fluid and the diaphragm? Thanks Mike

    Try any Sid Harvey's.

    You can't swing a dead cat on Long Island without hitting one.

    They have their own store brand refill/repair kit and it's considerably cheaper than the factory kit.

    Wet Kit

    Yes, their rebuild kit has a premeasured bottle that will adequately refill a fyrite.

    It should also have a diaphragm, and the top O-ring included.

    If your kit has been sitting too long, you may want to check the rubber plunger up top. If it's dry rotted, it will leak fluid and also will mess up your readings.

    After your rebuild, turn the gizmo upside down for a while to check your seals.

    Wear juice proof gloves because the test fluid is nasty on the skin.

    Thanks for using instruments!
