If you are not vaping all that frequently but you are still running out of vape juice then there is a good chance something is wrong with your vape’s tank. It is probably leaking. Most of the time, the user instantly knows if the tank of their vape is leaking. However, sometimes it becomes very difficult to know because there are absolutely no signs of a tank leak.
If you are unable to identify a leaking tank, then don’t worry. It is not that hard to tell. Here’s how you can identify if your tank is leaking.
- Carefully open the tank of the vape
- Look for apparent leaks
- If you are still not able to find, take a tissue paper and wipe off the tank with it
- If there are any residues of the juice on the tissue, then your tank is leaking
Now that you have identified a leak in the vape’s tank, it’s time to fix it. You may think that you have to get it fixed by a professional, but that’s not true. You can easily fix by following some simple steps.
Fill it Up with Care
Believe it or not, most of the tank leaks happen when you are careless while filling it. It can get very messy, and you might have to disassemble your entire vape. So, be careful while you are filling if you don’t want any leaks.
Make sure the tank is tight
Once you are done with filling the tank, tighten it very carefully. A loose assembly is another major reason for a tank leak. You can easily avoid a loose tank simply by checking the assembly twice every time you refill.
Always keep it Upright
If you randomly throw the vape on the bed or your side table, there is a good chance right there is the reason for your leaking tank. Try to keep it as much upright as you can. It helps to avoid tank leaks and hence, increases the overall life of the vape. Not to mention keeping it upright also avoids oil leakage and unnecessarily overspending on vape juice.
Tank leaking highly depends on how you puff. If you have a habit of puffing aggressively, then you are causing damage to the tank. A leak caused by aggressive puffing is very hard to detect. Therefore, I would suggest that you go easy on puffing.
While tank leaks are mostly easy to fix, they can be really difficult to detect. Once you’ve detected a leak, you can take measures to fix it. The bottom line is that a leaking tank is not a big problem and you can easily avoid it. All you have to do is be careful and follow the tips I’ve shared with you and a leaking tank will be the least of your worries.
