The inlet must be higher than the outlet gravity will push it out. If you don't have an air gap on the inlet you will get surging from the boiler

> I am wondering about the parrots beak? With an inlet at the bottom, does the distillate really work its way through the parrot, or does it have to be connected to the outlet of your still? A lot of the pics look like your product just drips into the parrot intake. But it seems to me that you need some sort of pressure to push the distillate through the parrot. Any advice would be very helpfull.
