Today after removing nozzle, i noticed traces of red food color from last photo session. I had used red food color along with xanthan gum.
After the session, i had drained valve with approx 250ml of clean water. I guess that was not enough to clean food color from valve. What’s your recommendation to keep valve clean after each photo session (without dismantling valve)? Shall i run plenty of detergent water through valve?
P.S. – I have refered your video to clean valve by dismantling. But I am interedted to know ways to clean without dismantling valve as regular practice.
Thanks for tip! Today i found my valve kinda stuck. I had just rinsed it 4 weeks ago after using xanthan gum water. Opened it up and cleaned internal spring etc. as shown in your video. All okbafter that.
One questions – I shoot alternate week, means I will have to clean valves each time by dismantling. Will valve seals/ o rings go bad after repeated dismantling?
