    Yatesy - have you made sure the hole is perpendicular to the wicks? How long are they too? Top wick too long can cause leaks. How is the o-ring that seals the coil from the top part? What tank are you using? Does it leak most after a fill, or just at the start?

    Sorry for the 101 questions, but I've found these to be the main reasons in my usage

    I usually do that in my wetsuit to keep me warm.

    Im just using a cheap dct tank atm, all the orings are intact. So the wicks on the side have to be lined up with the hole in the tube??? And yeah as soon as i put liquid in the tank it starts dripping out of that brass pin. Its really annoying haha

    Yup, the wicks have to rest on top of the hole otherwise it's floodstown.

    You have to be careful filling Yates, if you are sliding the Diver down to fill make sure the liquid feed hole isn't still in the tank. That just pushes the liquid into the hole.
    Move along!!! Nothing to see here.

    I'd say more then likely when you put the cap back on the pressure is pushing the juice through the feed hole on the Diver. I originally had the Diver in a longer tank so I had to use my Siam straight drip tip because the Diver wasn't long enough. So when I filled it I would slide the Diver and drip tip down to fill( without taking the top cap off) So the feeder hole was out of the tank when I was filling it.
