Ok- so I bought my hydration station about 2-3 weeks ago- once I put in batteries it lasted about 2 days before the bubbles started working- I just thought it ate up the batteries quickly- so then I put in new batteries- tested it once to made sure it worked- it did fine- and forgot about it for like a week- so like on fri I go to turn it on and the bubbles don't come on! I'm an adult I don't live with children or ppl who are interested in this thing- their is no way those batteries could have wasted so quickly! So I informed the company- but then they redirected me somewhere else- so now I have to call on mon because they only are in serves in the weekdays- oh! And I also diid just give it freash batteries and it still doesn't work!
Has anyone run into this problem?

Well you know how there are like, 3 streams of bubbles? Even though mine was brand new, only 2 streams work, one is like clogged or something. But I don't turn it on often and I still think the lights and 2 streams of bubbles are cool :)
Mine has 4 streams of bubbles.  So far mine has had no problems (knock on wood)
Maybe you put it in wrong? Im not sure, I havent had any problems and I have had mien for a while :/

What type of water did you use?  I made sure to use ONLY distilled water in mine.  A lot of water from the tap has minerals and such and can clog up stuff and cause them to stop working.  I had a fountain on the counter in our bathroom and I just used tap water for it.  One day I noticed the little ball on top of the water had stopped spinning and the water was really slow.  I took the ball off and it was coated with a layer of calcium.  I turned and drained the fountain and let it dry.  The entire thing was WHITE with calcium. 

 

I made sure to get a bottle of distilled water before I even turned my Hydration Station on.

OK , my daughters have had the hydration station for about 8 months now & just like you guys the bubbles stopped working.  I did fix the problem , it was relatively easy & here is what to do.  You will need a small phillips screwdriver & a spray can of air like the ones that blast the dust out of a computer keyboard.  Empty the water & turn the toy upside down.  You will see 4 screws , unscrew them & the bottom base will come off but do not pull it because it is attached by 2 wires.  You will see a little mechanism in there that I can best describe as a little drum.  Ther is a white plastic trigger that beats the drum causing air to pass thru the tube creating the bubbles.  Take the round black rubber piece off the drum & you will see a little hole that leads to the clear tubing.  Take the can of air & put the straw over that hole & blast it.  You should see some water movement in the clear tube.  Basically you are cleaning the tube out.  Then put a drop of oil on the base of the white plastic trigger.  Re attach the base , put the screws back & you should be fine.  I would imagine using distilled water will help but after some time I am sure this process will have to be repeated.  Good Luck.

Our bubble maker stopped working after we did not use the Hydration Station in a few months. I tried today to follow the instructions below, it worked perfectly and all four bubble makers are working again. I am now only using distilled water since I think that regular water could contribute to the bubbles to stop working. Thanks so much for posting this solution.

I would just repeat the process.  As long as one set of bubbles are working then you should be able to get them all to work.  There is just something in the tubes blocking air flow.  Take the can of air , position the straw and blast away!!

I just used the air pressure technique today and it worked like a charm. I used our well water, which probably clogged it in the first place, all four bubbles had stopped, and now all four work!

One piece of advice, be patient when reassembling, that part can be a bit tricky to get everything to line back up again.

Hi ghouls, please help :'( I have not used my hydration tank for a couple of months and when me and daughter wanted to play with it, it won't bubble anymore, I followed the instructions here, spraying WD-40 made it worked but for that moment only. When we opened it again the next morning, it wont work anymore and I noticed that the black rubber, or the drum looks loose, how do i fix it? It's not bubbling because the air is coming out of the drum since it's loose? Thank so much for the help.
