Default glycerin in a bubble counter?

I seem to remember someone talking about putting glycerin in a bubble counter and I got my millwaukee ma957 today and the bubble counter just seems to leak no matter what . I was thinking that adding glycerin might stop the problem. Can anyone think of a reason why I shouldn't?

I'm not sure about the glycerin, but there's something definitely wrong if you can't get the bubble counter to stop leaking. Where is it leaking from?

I would wait to do anything since it's brand new and you should have it working correctly.

The glycerin is mainly an evaporation thing as it evaporates slower than water. If your bubble counter is leaking there is a problem either with the assembly of it or the unit itself. I would e-mail both Milwaukee and the seller of the unit and describe your problems. Keep the e-mails in a safe place in case you get some bad info from either source. You can then send them a copy of the e-mail later if need be.
