    When I used to use a Diatom I allways used to purge it in a bucket first to get rid of the air bubbles that are in the top like OSD mentioned I would shake it a bit and it would work fine.

    Also make sure that the cap is well seated on the bottle push down and tighten while applying some presure.

    you would think they would have by now changed over to a thread on top. Or maybe something like they use on the smaller pickling bottles.

    I do press on the top of the motor while tighting the screws..i tried foam at the exaust,I put the exaust hose to go down in the tank and back up at the top with a foam..nothing seams to work...wondering maybe if the motor shaft is not the right dimensions and might be sucking air from the seal......maybe the glass container is not maybe the right dimensions or has a defect in it and let air in by the oring..........
