You need an o-ring between plexi tube and POM base. Really, drop me your address on PM. thumb.gif

How tight is the bottom piece to the tube? My first EK cylinder res I tightened it too much and it created a bunch of micro cracks on the tube.

i don't know why people don't seal their WC setups...

a single wrap of teflon tape will seal the threads... if you don't want to see the white tape you can use a brush and some clear silicone gel lube/waterproofing... apply a thin coat to the threads and screw together...

the silicone will also keep your o-rings from tearing/sticking/shrinking

EDIT: No o-ring? you can still seal it with some teflon tape or gel... but you should have an o-ring...

No O-ring?
There is supposed to be one there between the tube and bottom half.

I didn't get any O-ring when I bought the reservoir 1 year ago. I bought a new tube 2 weeks ago and no O-ring came with here either.

I haven't used any O-rings before between the lower bit and the tube and no leaks have showed up.

That's a big no-no, friend. WC setups aren't exactly the same as industrial plumbing tongue.gif

Suggest you change your title before you get an infraction...there nailed me for that.
