    Have you ever had fluid leak from the lid of a Solo and run down your back ??

    Take some sand paper and level out the top of the tank. That will allow it to sit flush on the rubber grommet, creating a good seal. Make sure you do this with the tank on it's side to prevent the shavings from going down to the pump. I'm disappointed Solo hasn't remedied this problem over the years.

    I tie a long white tube sock around the lid. It absorbs any liquid that might come out. Sometimes small amounts come out of the vent hole on lid as well.
