The Moisture War is Over!
Trapdri's Ultimate Expansion Kit includes a silica bottle and utilizes their multi airflow system for ultimate drying. Simply disconnect your bottle at the blue mid connector and plug in the silica or plain tube from this expansion kit.
The silica gel will turn from orange to green when wet. Simply unscrew the cap and pull the internal blue pipe down to just below the bottle top recess and empty the silica gel into a large ovenproof dish. Place in heated oven (between 220 and 250 degrees). Once silica has changed back to orange remove from oven and allow to cool before placing back into bottle while still warm. Push internal pipe back up inside bottle top and replace cap.
Important Product Note: All bagpipe water traps can develop mold and fungi with regular use if not cleaned and disinfected properly. This can lead to chronic inflammatory lung disease. Please take careful precautions to ensure your water trap is cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis to prevent mold and fungi from developing.
