We know that not all the fermenters available on the market are always perfectly airtight. During the development of Plaato, we have been through 20+ different types of fermenters, and the average leak affects marginally.

Plaato will still measure the fermentation activity, gather and analyze data of your fermentation. In case of a major leak, the specific values will of course be a bit off - although in this case it might be better to invest in a new fermenter to avoid contamination.
