    My Clear Tank CNC with Wings got some small cracks at the lower thread area after only few weeks of use. (app. 8 to 10 times opened and slowly and carefully closed for rewicking.)
    Still no leaking, but if they grow it can't take very long anymore.
    Has anybody else also had this problem, and Is this a case of guarantee or do I have to reorder (incl. 14€ postage from Spain)?
    AND how can I prevent a new tank from cracking again after several weeks?

    Hi Marst,

    Mine cracked as well. Unfortunately it can be an issue with clear plastic tanks that utilise a threaded design. I found that acidic juice weakened the tank and then screwing it down destroyed it altogether. It's a bit of a trade off with tanks that don't leak (Kayfun lite too). My advice is to get the steel tank and you won't have that problem again :)
