Lightbulb KM GREEN PEAR GOES STEALTHY

I modified a heba filter to make my KM silent running. The usual reassuring bubbly noise was interfering with my movie night, sOoo....

I dug out my heba, pulled off the grommet and dipped it in hot water to make it more pliable. When i was sure it wouldn't tear, i took my trusty spyderco and slit a few slits down the lines radiating up from the hole in the center of the gasket. This allowed it to slide ( with a bit of coaxing over the bottom of the KM's downstem, and since the gasket was just slit it sealed neatly around the stem. I attached the large filter basket (the small won't fit)and voila! She's silent running.

I thought you were going to say your KM ran away from you or was being sneaky or something

Save yourself some money guys... make a filter out of the bottom of a Sharpie marker. Just poke some holes in it with a small nail then poke a larger hole at the very bottom and if you do it right the Sharpie should fit right in the center of your stem.

Good answer but stems vary a lot regarding their ID.

I would love to see some pic of your diffuseR? I have a km pear as well and a heba difuser.. and my english is not always perfect so what I understand is that it doesn't fit in standard.. so you cut one time, jsut o cut, into the diffuser to make the stem slide into the diffuser? And then how much water above the diffuser should u use?

after you make the slices so it slides over the "button" on the bottom of a KM, coax it over and slide up the stem and back down flush with the "button", attach the large heba basket and submerge it like you normally would without the diffuser (so submerged about an inch or inch an half beneath the water). I know, i know...pictures. i really got to dig out my digital camera. :P
