Thread: Water in the Tube ?
What should it look like ?
I just bought a 40w 2030 and hooked up the water supply, and there is a puddle in the bottom of the main outer tube.
I can see water flowing through the narowwer inner tube.
If I pinch the output water hose, there is dripping at the low voltage end .. inside the tube from the narrow tube to the outer larger tube
does that make sense ? :)
If so , does it sound wrong ?
It looks wrong, and the tube doesn't fire !
I've hooked the wires up to another tube and that fires ok
Help please :)
yes I know about HV/EHT etc. Thanks :)... I'll maybe do a vid of the 'slosh' in the tube ! :) lol
one in, one out, for me to connect ... then it goes out and in each end to cool the mirror and coupler
I think that water in the tube could be extremely dangerous, either from the electrical aspect or the risk of the water boiling and developing a high (explosive) pressure in the tube. Please do not power the machine up like this. G.

All switched off and waiting for new tube now :)
And I'll have to fix the pin hole in the hose now too !
