Hi WGiant,Thanks for your feedback,
1. I heard that the original ink especially the white ink have the same trouble,too.that's why there are huge numuber GT381 users compain about the machine and ink on T-shirtforum.Quoted the Post by a GT381 users as below
"Every morning I come in, move the ink lines and lightly flick the lines going into the dampers, I turn on the machine and then shake, agitate, the white ink bag. This also sends vibration down thru the ink lines to the dampers. I run a nozzle check.. see if anything is missing, then if so, I run a simple clean... shaking, agitating, the white ink bag again. Run another nozzle check. May or may not have to do another simple clean.. If there is a lot of bubbles in the with ink lines at the dampers.. do an ink pull with your syringe. Nozzle check again.--------from a GT381 user.

2.Plan A:EXPENSIVE ORIGINAL INK+cleaning fee+head change fee.
Plan B:Stable and cheap ink +cheap cleaning fee+head change fee.

So there are lots of Brother GT users want to try the ink.
The pursuit of benefit is human nature.

3.No matter original ink or compatible ink the machine should be carefully maintained.

4.Fankly,the bug of GT381 is no white ink self-circulation system.that is the source of all problems.Nowadays,most of DTG printers ion market are equipped with the system,such as Kornit storm series,Epson DX4/5/6/7/5113/TFP head printer.

5.After all,Brother GT series is high speed dtg printer with industrial head and productive.
the machine will make money for people if it is operated correctly.

Waiting here for GT381 senior players~

thanks,
