A Question for Experienced User's of EB's AWS

With your experience, is it necessary to have the AWS supplied tubes stand in an upright position, or can they lean over to the side (corner) of the EB box the way the original tubes would "naturally" lay unless propped up by packing potting mix around them? I've noticed that if they are upright, they do not go down as far into the bottom of the EB as they do when leaning to the side. Will this have an effect on the "pressure" inside the clear tube? My 10 EB's are filled with potting mix and the 10 AWS tubes are leaning to the side (corner). Do I need to set them straight up and down? I have not planted anything as of yet.

I answered this in your other thread asking the same thing.
The slight lean is normal and OK

bdobs,
Thank you for your quick response, Nonetheless, I'm not talking about a "slight" lean. I am talking about a full lean to the corner of the EB. Again, thanks for your reply. BTW, I did see your earlier response. I just want more than one opinion. Others may have different answers than yours. I do value your opinion, however.
So, does anyone else who has EB's AWS have their tubes leaning into the corner and everything seems to be working as it should?
Thank you for your answers, also,
kh63.

When the tube is properly seated in the box, it does tilt/lean into the corner, with or without the AWS. That is normal.

Mickie, thank you for your reply. That is more direct to the answer that I am needing. Then I should be "good to go" with my planting.

Thank you and bdobs for your help. Anyone else who would like to make a contribution to this question (and you have experience with the AWS) are welcomed to comment. I will be reading all comments posted.
