AFC Tank Section doesn't screw down fully!
Problem!

The air flow control tank section doesn't screw down completely on my Aqua. There is a 1-2mm +/- gap (50% Airholes visible) I tried using some force to close it but nothing works, the threading seems to run too short to fully seal the AFC?

If you see the 1st picture of this aqua, the AFC tank is completely sealed and aligned with the base the same one I received does not close completely.

Gwailo, we examied our inventory and it will close completely if you screw down it fully. But if yours won't work, please open a ticket for warranty. Thank you.
**Please post your order number** when asking order specific questions. Thank you.

This may sound silly, and don't take offense. Make sure you have the tank right side up. The bottom part of the tube has a 5mm smooth portion before the threads start that covers the o ring and air intake holes. The top part has threads all the way up.

If you don't have that smooth portion, or its less than 5 mm, it will not go all the way down.

Hey Aesop,

None taken, the Aqua logo is on the bottom of the tank as pictured. It is just the final maybe 3-4 twists that aren't tightening down all the way. Could possibly be a threading issue, im at work so Ill check when at home

Thanks
