Can someone explain the use of the dual air/water valve on the Missouri. Do you leave a certain amount of air in the AV all the time, then just add the correct temp of water before using? A new user. Thanks.

You can increase the pressure of the AV by adding air after adding water. It's not something I've ever found to be useful, although I did try in in my early years of using a Missouri AV (I no longer use the Missouri as a matter of routine now). I always found that sufficient (or too much!) pressure could be obtained with water pressure alone, and that one got a better heat distribution in the event that one used solely water. With air added, one got cool spots in the AV. Note also that one can have too great a pressure in the AV which can prevent passage of the penis through to the distal end of the unit, which is essential to ensure that the ejaculation clears the heated liner, thereby preventing heat shock of the sperm.

Any suggestions as to length of AV required for an Arabian? Does anyone know what the diameter is of the cylinder used in the Colorado?
