ok, I accidentally dropped my auto siphon a few days ago and I noticed today that there are some TINY little spider cracks on the outside about 1/2 way up the outer "shell" of it, almost can't tell they're their until the light hits it just right... I can't tell if they go all the way through or not but I assume at this point that the outer shell is screwed for ever using again for fear of infection. Can I just pull out the "racking Cane" section of it and create a siphon the old fashioned way with that part of it (it's undamaged)?
also I've seen that most people don't recommend using your mouth on the tubing to create the suction. how would I start the siphon otherwise????
I'm going to miss my autosiphon
, it was so easy to use
