    Exactly what I thought it created a vacuum and sucked the sides and top in.

    U have made it air tight lol drill small hole in the lid or open it

    As water leaves the tank air enters it from the top making the water leave faster

    It's normal lol make a hole

    Yeah I was looking at putting a fitting on top of the tank with abit of hose coming of it to stop the leakage. But I'm surprised this is not covered in the making of the tank like a vent on the top
