"I was thinking the same, used to be a guy called Mick I believe who made all the bottles, maybe he left and took all the knowledge with him :-D. I don’t think they validate much to be honest given the chrome iO and smart Astro in particular…"
"Quite a few reports of this issue in other places too it seems. Amazing how they can’t make their own product after all these years.
I've been to the factory a couple of times, it’s quite an armature operation so sadly not too…"

"I just received mine and it has the same exact issue. I had my exported to the US so I figured there would be no way of getting it back unless I ship it back and pay even more. Is there any in home remedies for it? "
