    I have a van system and unfortunately the DI Vessel is leaking from the top, i bought the rubber ring and yet I'm still getting a leak from some wear.

    I just wanted to check with you guys the life cycle of a DI Vessel. One is 3 years old and in my other van the other is just over two years old and also has a slight leak.

    My question is, has anyone else had to replace the whole bottle? or is it likely loose fittings (i have tightened all fittings)


    Thanks

    I find my vessel leaks slightly, though not all the time. Usually starts, if its going to, after ive changed the resin. Sometimes, if i take it out and tighten up the lid, that works, but sometimes not, and as im sure you are aware, they are pretty akward to tighten properly!. But im not going to worry too much about it until it starts leaking a lot, then i will start thinking about replacing it!. By the way, mine is coming up for 3 years old, and being di only, the resin in my vessel lasts just over a month, so it has been opened and closed many times!.

    Thanks for all the answers :0


    Its crazy right? Although mine never used to leak i do think all the driving around over speed bumps and changing resin must not help. Maybe i will have to replace (shocked face)
