    Leaking tanks - new O Rings methinks

    G'day all

    My tanks (all three of the damn things) have taken to leaking.

    I'm finding that inserting the cartos is just too easy, so I figure my Orings have passed their service life.

    Anyone got a good source of Orings that they care to share?

    Try letting them soak in boiling water so they can return to their original shape and let them cool in the water. Then hit them up with a bit of petroleum jelly. It should help provided you have not cut the o-rings or taken nicks out of them.

    Just as a tip, ( you can ignore if you like ) keep a little Baggie of rings, I found as I go along with this vaping I end up with spare o rings ( collected from dodgy drip tips, cheapo Chinese tanks etc ) , not that useful for you at this point GirlyPantz suggestion makes sense to give a try though,

    Hi guys - I'm sorry that I disappeared like that. RL is being a stone cold pain in the rear end at the moment.

    Thanks Dalmas - I'll have a look at that site.

    Girlpantz - I'm afraid that my orings are pretty much beyond that ... they seem to have gotten chewed up over the past 18 months, even though I use a Slap yo Mama adaptor.

    Richo - I"m afraid that I've used up all my spares, which is why I'm having to shop


    himynameisbunny - it seems to be happening on all my tanks. My big daddy, my EPMs, all of them.

    Thanks for the input guys.

    The Slap yo mama is only available from Big Daddy in the US.

    That having been said, there are plastic devices which do the same thing which may be available locally - I don't know. Perhaps someone else in thread might be able to illuminate us?

    ROFL!

    I just placed an order with Vapebar 30 minutes ago, and never even noticed.

    Thanks for that mate!
