Vaping Troubleshooting - Dealing with Leaks

Vaping can be an enjoyable and convenient way to enjoy nicotine and other oils from herbs hehe, but it also comes with its own set of issues and problems. One of the most common vaping issues is leaking. Leaking is a significant problem for many vapers, because not only does it affect the taste and quality of their vaping experience, but it can also cause a mess in their pocket or bag. Fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to mitigate the risk of leaks.

Check For Oil Residue on Your Tank

One of the most common causes of leaking is e-liquid residue left on your tank after refilling. This residue can build up over time and create enough pressure to force liquid out through any tiny gaps in your tank. To prevent this from happening, be sure to thoroughly clean your tank after every refill. Use a cloth or cotton swab saturated with warm water to remove any residue from around the seals and threads at the base of your tank. This will help ensure that no extra pressure builds up inside your tank due to residue buildup.

Make Sure Your Coils Are Clean

Another common cause of leaks is a clogged or dirty coil head. When you vape, the heat from your device turns e-liquid into vapor; however, if there isn’t enough airflow around your coils (due to dust or debris buildup) then the e-liquid can start to seep out through the sides of your tank instead of turning into vapor. To prevent this from happening, always make sure that you keep your coils clean and free from dust or debris buildup by regularly cleaning them with warm water or cleaning wipes specifically made for vaping devices.

Check Your O-Rings

In addition to keeping your tank clean and making sure that there’s adequate airflow around your coils, you should also check the o-rings around the base of your tank periodically for wear and tear. Over time, these rubber rings can become worn down due to regular use and exposure to e-juice; if they become too weak then they may not be able to provide an adequate seal against leaks anymore! If you notice any signs of wear or damage on these o-rings then replace them immediately as this could be one possible cause for leaking tanks.


Leaking tanks are one of the most common problems faced by vapers around the world; fortunately, there are some simple steps you can take to reduce its occurrence such as keeping your tank clean after each refill and checking for worn out o-rings periodically etc.. If all else fails then it might be time for you to purchase a new device! Remember - prevention is better than cure! By following these tips you should have no trouble enjoying vaping without worrying about pesky leaks spoiling things for you in future!
