alright, so almost 3 weeks with this thing and i've noticed a couple things.
a) the filter seems to plug up from the inside the same day the bag is installed
b) as the bag fills up, the area above the flange (where the filter is) gets pulled forward, pushing your shirt out and making the bag more noticeable.
any thoughts on how to solve these issues?
i was thinking maybe folding over the area above the flange and taping it down with some medical tape. this could prevent stool from plugging up the filter and also that area wouldn't get pulled forward as the bag fills up?
does anyone do anything different or have other suggestions?
