Handy Hints

Number 1

A number of Instructors focus on dehydration as part of daily briefings .

I looked at my drink system tonight, getting ready for those wonderful, warm, hot, high climbs, strong thermal days and was shocked to find mould in the system. I thought I had cleaned, sterilised, and stored correctly for the winter -----Wrong---- If you use an in flight drink system (mine is the popular Platypus) or any container that has been in storage Please Please check it prior to use.

I had the same problem with my system I got over it by putting a peace of plastic pipe in a “u” shape inside the bottle to keep the air flowing to dry it out. The mould will only grow if it is damp I also remove the mouth peace and tube and dried them. I do this every time it’s used no more problems hope this helps (PD)
