    Silo Beast

    Anyone else running with these and getting a heck of a lot of fluid building up in the drip tip cut-out of the top cap?

    Anyone managed to find a good solution besides carrying tissues everywhere?

    The tissues make me look like I got issues.

    I have the same issue in my BB's I put a small thin o-ring under my drip tip and in the tip well. This means any condensation that collects on the bottom of the drip tip goes back into the chimney tube. The oring internal diameter need to be bigger than the chimney hole and thin enough to not impede the drip tip fitting securely.

    I have same issues with my atlantis and other tanks as well.

    XX I read your solution and every time I go back to read it.... My left eye starts twitching from total incomprehension. It is still early, so I'll go back to it later and hope not to disappear in a puff of ignorance.

    Ummm, what looks weirdest, someone pulling out a tissue or someone pulling out what looks like, a detonation device, rips off the mouth piece and then sticks the said tissue in the top of it, puts the top bit back and actually puts it in his mouth?

    I hate soggy tissues in my pocket.

    Some pics

    Condensation builds up on the bottom of the drip tip and pools at the section that holds the drip tip. The little o-ring stops the pooling happening. You still get condensation but it seeps back to the coil rather than hangs around

    That is perfect, now to find an o ring that small.

    I am pretty sure that the oring from drip tips are the same size.

    It's easier to show rather than explain. My explanations come from a place of knowing what I mean and quite often miss the vital bits.

    Because you are not really using it to seal you can cut it a bit thinner if you want as long as you keep an unbroken circle it will work.
