According to this, replacing the bag on your easy valve is possible.
Update: it is indeed possible! I replaced the bag easily in a few minutes. There’s nothing to clean… it really is the easy valve.
heat up in a bowl of hot water and it comes apart easier
i have a very proven method for taking them apart, that doesn’t mess up the valve at all… cut off the bag, mount the orange part of the valve in my bench vise, with a sock around it to protect it… them a large flat blade screwdriver, just under the clear plastic piece, a quick push with the screwdriver, and DONE.
always make the bag much longer than you think, put the o-ring over the bag, and even it out, make sure you have the FLAT SIDE OUT on the clear piece before you put the o-ring over everything… put the orange part on something hard, and use a folded up rag to your liking to pop the pieces back together… very easy. i’ve done it a lot!
This is a better, slightly different method. It’s much easier. The basic idea is to add the valve to the side of a turkey bag and seal the open end with a rubber band.
There’s no longer a working video on YouTube or here to show how to replace a bag on what I assume is an easy valve vaporizer (black end with black water bottle-like spout). Any tips for changing the bag (I need a “how to guide”)? Thx.
The video above shows just that. Perhaps you’re referring to the Solid Valve – check these photos out: http://volcanotips.com/volcano/volcano-vaporizer-taking-apart-and-cleaning/?nggpage=3
lol @ hammer doesn’t work. replacing the bag isn’t too difficult now that I’ve done it six billion times 😛
I am able to get as far as removing the orange mouthpiece, the black band, the clear washer and the thing with an X cut into it.
BUT, I am unable to make a new bag. Yes, I have tried to read the instructions, and I’ve watched the above video, btu I can’t figure it out.
Where are you stuck? To make a new bag, cut the tube to length, tie one end off, and attach the clear washer with the black band. Does that help?
OOOh, when you do change the bag… Theres hash oil in there. I fill a creme brulee ramekin 2/3 full with 90% isopropyl. Pour it into used bag and work all that amber into the alcohol. pour it into the ramekin to evap. Week later theres a few ill oil hits for ya.
It does work, Helps to push it back in with a magazine or paperback book betwen your hand and the mouthpiece. Hurts a lot less. These “disposable” pieces are quite stout. Takes a lot of changes but the orange thing gets chewed up on the inside from the screwdriver, or whater you use to seperate orange thing from bag.
Really. It works.
Well, hammer doesn’t work
