    Its the blue one and its 11LTR

    Above the black part at the bottom it leaks water.... and i put laods of pft tape around it then on top of that i sellotaped it up

    and it still kind of leaks !

    I bought it from WCW or i think it was from Cleaning Spot...

    They leak from the inlet and outlet at the top, but if you wrap loads and loads of ptfe tape it does the trick.

    But leaking from the bottom.....if it really is leaking from the bottom, its knackered!! Are you sure its not leaking from the top, running down the side, and looks like its leaking from the bottom?!

    Mine leaked ones from the seal where you screw the top in, yet that was cause resin was in the grooves, and that was hard to source for some reason.
    I could only help if I saw it to be honest.
