    pellet pumps - half fill with pellets and cover with wateror flavoured liquid and the pumpaction forces waterin to the pellets and air out so floating pellets sink

    It's a good way to do this - the other way is to soak pellets in water until they sink

    Pellets pumps do the job in about a minutes - keeps goign until all the pellets sink -some will not first time -

    And yet they do work

    Pellet pumps are a good accessory, you can flavour pellets when pumping them too, they also work on dog biscuits too. If the pellets you have are floaters and you want them to remain floaters then don't pump them, the air in them is replaced by water and they will sink.

    Mine are the ones from Amazon, the Vacuvin food saver version, I did a review on the old site but only Graham's one has been transferred.

    Darren, try adding some jelly crystals to the water and leave the pellets to 'set'. Any flavour you wish to experiment with
