I’m sorry @mikling, I can’t let you get away with this falsehoods, maybe it’s an error on your part as to which cartridge your actually referring too, because none of the PGl-72 cartridge that I have in my arsenal have any AIR inlet hole in them. Recheck your facts and then correct yourself please ?…There is a small air inlet at the top corner of the tanks
The fast refill method (as you call it), does not have any ill effects on the internal workings of the internal bladder either, because this method has been in use by many others, including myself for more than ten years very safely..There is another reason why you should NOT use the fast method as some have espoused. Once the bladder inside has set its folds as a bellow inside, you only want to have it repeat the same path over and over and its pattern is smooth, If you force the folds out completely, you can disrupt the pattern and then it can cause a sticking action. There is another reason the fast method is not so good. It does not clear the pigment settled into the contact pad
The PGl-9 and PGl-72 cartridges are by far the easiest cartridge to refilled and there are some so called experts that try to say different and make it seem very difficult, when in fact there’re not, yes OEM cartridges can sometimes fail and so can their chips and no one on this Forum has ever mentioned plunging the carts in water to clean..Those espousing dumping these tanks into water need to correct their advice. Some were advising to "wash" these tanks.
Espouse O' its like that.. !I wish no comments how the fast method worked for them and there is no issue. There are many paths to a destination.
