If you are really motivated to use this, you could consider making your own. It would require taking the sterile water or normal saline pre-filled 10ml. syringe from your catheter insertion kit, squirt out 1ml, and use it to then suck up 1ml. of 100% liquid glycerin. If you use this for the balloon filling, be sure that the glycerin is mixed well in the syringe before use (shake it well).

Until recently, when a member here mentioned they noticed the balloons deflating in the Duette catheters, I don't think many of us gave it much thought. I think it should be said that the Duette catheter isn't unique in this problem. With silicone foley catheters, in general, you will find the balloons will deflate some over a one month use. It is the silicone material, not a manufacturing issue.
