Please take extra care with the platform as if this is damaged or bent out of shape it will hinder performance. You can purchase replacement parts through our online shop as required.
Please ensure that the valve located in the base of the bottle is not sealed shut. At the top of the domed shape valve, there is a 12mm slit that can sometimes stick together after washing. Gently squeeze the dome and the slit should pop apart. In order for the platform to move freely up the tube it requires airflow through the base and up through the tube. Please also check that the inlet hole in the base is not obstructed.

The top of the platform will line up with the markers indicating the amount of food remaining in the bottle.
