    Leaking Coolingmist Pro trunk mount meth tank, anyone elsa had issues?

    My tank leaks, I am not sure exactly where yet, but I want to know if anyone else had issues. I had it for several months now, but it started leaking just now.

    It is not after the pump, that was easy to check, so I assume it is either the low level or pump feed that is leaking.

    Any ideas?

    when i refilled my last month, it started leaking insanely at the clear tube fitting which was installed on the bottom of the tank. Was pretty annoying since the meth tanks sits over my battery. Gonna have to the give the installer a call and have him seal it up nicely with caulk when i have some time

    coolingmist sucks junk it and get a aquamist! ANd to answer your question there is a rumor going around that coolingmist skimped out on the washers and they degrade and so therefore end up leaking.

    It would be sad if there is a material failure here. The tank is the only tank I have seen that looked good enough to want to have in the car.

    If it is some washers or seals that failed I hope I can document it well enough to get help from CM to have it fixed.

    Mine was leaking a few weeks ago and it was due to me not full mounting the tank securely *movement around the fitting area*. More than likely it's the fitting, buy another one and secure the tank asap and all will be well.

    Haven't had any leaking problems reported with any of the CM tanks. If you have a leak find where it's leaking from. If you can't figure out how to make it stop leaking just contact CM. They are pretty good with support.

    I will take the tank out today and take it aprt to check.

    It is pretty well monted and I already checked the line going from the pump since it is the only part that could get pulled when I move the tank to get access to the cabling.

    By the way it is worth mentioning both CM and Terry responded to my support emails asap, why cant other business provide this level of service?

    Seems this isn't a random one-off problem.

    Terry response fast. Don't know about Coolingmist so I'll take your word for it. What are they doing for you?

    It also leaks by the tap for the pump feed line.

    I emailed CM and asked for help on returning the tank and getting it replaced.

    The leaking tap could be a seal or washer not being good enough, but so far I have had only good experiences from dealings with CM. So the "sucks junk" comment seems a little harsh if you dont have any first hand experience yourself from them?

    I've only had mine for a few weeks in and running, but it hasn't leaked on it's own (had a small leak where the line going from tank to pump wasn't seated perfectly so it leaked a bit) but other than that I've been ok...<crosses fingers>

    CM said they send me an replacement tank after seeing the video.

    Very happy with CM, nice turn around on emails and I have been getting the support I need.

    can't speak on coolingmist product as I never owned any other than fittings and nozzle holder, but any questions I had for Dave were answered very quickly. No complaints on support for sure.
