    Public service announcement: the 1st amendment means the government can't arrest you for what you say. It doesn't mean anyone has to listen or provide a platform. It doesn't shield you from consequences. If you are yelled at, cancelled, boycotted or banned your rights are not being violated, it's just that the people listening think you're an asshole.

    I pulled one out, twice and took it completely apart, soaked everything in solvent. I must be missing something or maybe it's trashed.

    @Crepitus - should I replace components like those floats or is it just more practical to get a new one?

    Unless you already have the tools and chemicals you need to do it you won't be saving much money by rebuilding them.

    If the floats are metal they can be reused as long as there is no liquid inside them, if neoprene (black plastic) they should be replaced.

    if the float is neoprene that is likely the problem
