How to Deal with a Leaking Vape Tank

Posted by David Nadel on

A leaking tank is a common problem for those who vape. It can be frustrating and can easily cause a sticky mess. A tank that is seeping juice can sometimes have the issue resolved quite easily. Here are tips on how to figure out what is going wrong, how to fix, and how to properly maintain a vape tank that is leaking.

Atomizer Coil Issues

There is always a chance that the components of your device were manufactured faulty. It is not uncommon for a company to produce a dud. It is rare, but you might end up finding an atomizer that was produced incorrectly. You can check if this is the issue by replacing the coil that you’re using with a new one. If the problem is not resolved, you will still be able to use the coils in the future once you have found the source of the leak.

Wattage Setting

An appropriate wattage for your MOD directly correlates to the resistance of the coil being used. Resistance and wattage have an inverse relationship. This means that the higher the resistance is, the lower the wattage and the higher the wattage, the lower the resistance. If you have your wattage set too low, it will not create enough heat to vaporize the juice. This results in a gurgling noise, flooding, and will end up causing your device to leak. The e-juice that is being siphoned to the head is not able to be vaporized and ends up leaking through. This can be easily fixed by increasing the voltage or wattage. This might help eliminate the leak.

Airflow Control Valve

Having your airflow control valve set to its lowest setting will restrict the air intake of the tank. This will force you to take a deeper drag using more force. If the intensity is too much, this will force too much e-juice into the coil, resulting in a gurgling sound, flooding, and some leaking. Try to loosen the airflow setting to allow for more air. This will possibly resolve the problem of leaking.

Correct Assembly

If you want to identify what is causing the leak in your vape tank, be careful to inspect your device and all of its components to make sure everything was put together correctly. It could be as simple as your coil not being threaded correctly or that it is not screwed on tight enough. These simple things can cause your e-juice to escape your tank. Remove your atomizer and screw it back on, making sure the atomizer is threaded correctly. You will also need to check that the glass tube is properly placed. Some tanks will leak if the glass tube is inserted upside-down. Once you have inspected all your tanks components, put it back together securely but make sure that you do not over-tighten the parts.

Look for Cracks and Check Seals

Most new tanks are made with quartz or Pyrex glass tubes. This offers many benefits but are also prone to breaking and cracking. Inspect your entire tube for any cracks or fractures that might allow a leak. If you find one, replace the tube. Another possible cause is seals and O-rings that are missing or damaged. Check each seal to make sure that they are not allowing juice to escape.

There are many different things that can cause a tank to leak. By checking all of these things you should be able to figure out what the problem is. Fixing them yourself can save you from having to purchase a new tank
