    So after changing my o rings for the first time I have noticed that it’s harder to open & close the holes on my tank.
    I have a Nautilus 2 but I figure the set-up is similar to most other tanks.

    I made sure to clean, rinse & dry the tank well.
    I checked that everything was on right before reassembling.

    So I guess I’m asking is this normal?
    Do things have to wear in a bit before parts move easily?

    I have also had a few leaks too which could have been due to air getting in as I didn’t want to over screw the tank right down.

    Any thoughts would be appreciated.

    A bit of juice on the O'rings works wonders..!

    The Nautilus 2 is prone to a bit of leaking Mr Monk - if you feel ready to move onto building the Digiflavor Siren V2 is very easy to build on and you can buy ready to fit MTL coils from fasttech for just a few $$$ for a bag of fifty.
    I am new to the Siren but finding it really good and it doesn't leak.
    Or the Mini Nautilus will also fit the same stock coils as your Nauti 2 and also never leaks.
    Both the Siren & Mini Nauti will run well on your Zelos at low watts. The Mini Nauti is kinda old school these days but I still love mine and use them daily.
    Ps, with the Nauti 2, you do need to close the airflow completely before refilling.

    Thanks for the suggestion.
    I’m definitely not ready to build yet but if I go that route I will refer back to your suggestion.

    I think it was you that recommended the Nautilus 2 tank. I have been happy with it besides a few minor issues being the o ring issue that started the thread & a few leaks here & there but never a leak that affected the battery. It looks to built in a way that if a leak occurs that it will be pushed out of the air holes first.
    I am happy vaping at around 18 watts on a 0.7 coil.
    It burns my high VG juice well which is pretty much my only goal.

    A little off topic but (but it shouldn’t really mess with the thread) but I have some stuff that I would like to pass along or PIA I think was the acronym that you used. Anyway I’d like to discuss it with you via inbox if that’s okay?

    Oh no I really screwed up that arconym lol.
    I meant to write pass it along (PIA) but that still would not have been the right jargon.
