pr0wlunwoof Speaking of getting liquid into the pump, I have looked into a bleed off canister with the incoming tube to be low and the suction tube to be high in the canister to avoid it going straight into the pump. I haven’t done anything with this yet but
Has anyone else tried this? This comes into play for me when I use the accessories hose and vacuuming Kerr jars of kraut for long term storage in the fridge.
Chamber Vac Canning Jar Hack

My cousin had 2 chamber vacs so she sold me one. She does a lot of freeze dried items, and said she uses the chamber vac to seal the jars to store her freeze dried stuff. I said what?? So she showed me and it actually works pretty slick. So you need to screw the lid on just barely finger tight. Lay it down in the vac chamber, or stand it up if your chamber is tall enough. Then run the vac cycle. It will suck the seal onto the jar. The key is tightening the lid the right amount. It may take you a couple tries, but once you know how tight to start, you can repeat it every time.
