Hydration Pack
Ok i finally got a hydration pack for myself. My question is on the tip of it where the liquid is suppose to come out are u suppose to cut it because i filled mine and no water was coming out of the tip?

Do you have a camelbak? Does it have the switch near the bite valve to turn the flow on and off? It looks like a sprinkler valve. If so, turn it the other way and you should be in business. Also, be sure to remove the plastic packaging from around the bite valve. Also, you will need to bite down on the valve at the end and suck for a few seconds until the water comes through the line. You always have to treat it like a straw, it shouldn't just run on you. If those two things don't fix it, remove the tubing and try to run some water through it to see if you have a blockage somewhere. Then just keep isolating components until you find the problem. Camelbaks are very modular and easy to diagnose.

It does not have the switchh valve i looked for that the brand is a High Sierra. I took the bit off and blew through it to see if any air came out and nothing. It shows on the bit on both sides a shield with a water drop in it then pointing at a hole but it looks like it needs to be cut idk lol.

Ok i figured it out there was a split in the top of the bit to get water through, thank you!!
