Minor Res leak

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
While leak testing my brothers wc loop this morning, I noticed that after about 30 minutes there is a little bit of water forming on top of the bottom cap of the reservoir.

The reservoir in question is the Frozenq 250mm Liquid fusian V series 2nd gen.

I was thinking that pulling apart the res and reapplying the teflon tape may fix the problem.

Thoughts? advice?

If its leaking from the thread yeah some PTFE tape should sort it out. Its more the O ring that should be making the seal, is that fitted correctly and been compressed enough.
