    Changed my resin recently and have it doesn't matter how hard a screw the riser in, I still have water dribbling down the sides.
    I've taken the riser back out several times and cleaned it to no avail.
    Any of you had this, and how did you resolve it. Thanks in advance

    It's happened to me a few times but I have just taken top off and cleaned around the threaded parts which fixed the problem for me, if it's not damaged then it should just be a bit of resin around the thread

    Is there a rubber ring that goes around the inside of the di I've had this before couldn't work it out turns out I'd lost it when unscrewing the lid. I bought new di and realised that's what was missing.

    Yeh, that's still attached. Had this vessel 9 years, so might invest in a new one. Don't mind splashing the cash as we've just finished our mortgage! Yehhhhhaaaah

    9 years old? Has the rubber ring perished?

    It looks fine tuffers. I've been checking everything. I keep it stood in a plastic box that catches the drips so its no great problem
