Risks of refilling Canon Pro 9000 cartridges?

Hi Y'all,

Just started refilling cartridges for my Canon Pro 9000 mk II and one thing I would like more info on is firstly how does this printer establish when there is no ink left in the cartridge? Is this purely calculated on usgae or does it detect ink levels? More importantly if the prior is true what happens if there is an airlock in the refillled cartridge and ink does not flow from it, is there any risk of damaging the print head?

Printers are so cheap these days I shouldn't be concerned.......but for some reason I am?

Kevin
