Recently purchased the French INRA AV. During set up for first use, the thin "inner" latex liner tore, rendering it unuseable.

Does the thinner latex liner have a purpose other than keeping the main water retaining liner clean. I am planning to use disposable plastic liners so I am wondering if I can dispense with the thin latex liner altogether. My concern is that there will be too much heat transfer without the inner liner in place.

Also wondering if anyone has any tips for keeping wrinkles out of the plastic liners.

Thanks in advance.

We do not use the thin latex liner. Yes, the intention is to protect the thicker latex liner and to avoid having to remove all of the latex liners to clean it each time after use. Just use the disposable plastic liners...!!

Never really had any problems with wrnkles in the plastic liners - we use a Playtex baby bottle as the collection bottle which is a little heavier perhaps, and removes the wrinkles.

If you want to possibly use the [torn] latex liner in the future, I would give IMV a call and tell them your problem - they are pretty good at customer PR and will probably replace it.

One more question...

Do you recommend securing the disposable liner on the "entry" end (ie with a rubber band), or do you find that simply folding it over the end of the AV offers enough stability to the liner. Also, do you try to "stretch" the disposable liner tight or leave it fairly loose.

Thanks for your time Jos! It would be nice if these AVs came with set up guidelines.

I as teaching my stallion to ground collect with my French AV and today things were going along just beautifully with the horse thrusting well, when the water retaining liner on the entry edge slid off and water went everywhere. I specifically asked the person I spoke to at IMV if any bands were required to hold the latex liner in place and was told "no". I have a feeling I was told wrong. If not what do I do to secure the liner. I definitely do not want a repeat performance.

We always secure both ends with bands. If you have an old latex liner, you can cut off 1" wide strips and use them as bands - wrap them 2 or 3 times around to secure the liners. Additionally, we also use Duct tape, as we find that helps prevent slipping.

The liner needs to be stretched tight. If it is not, then you can have a situation where a stallion picks up a "fold" of the liner and that can result in the sperm being trapped in the liner of the AV and heat shocked after ejaculation.
