    Just to let you know I searched for this issue and couldn't find anything.

    I've been using my Nautilus and mini for a while now and they have been the best tanks I've owned. The big one holds a ton of juice, gives huge hits that taste great and is overall very good quality.

    Just over the past two weeks I've had dry hits with BVC coils which never happens. I'm able to make it go away by taking hits without firing. I found out why this is happening and it's because the rubber gasket on the bottom hardware is enlarged. I'm not really sure why this is happening now but I haven't changed anything. I have two big nautilus and it happens on both of them. If I take it apart and let it sit the gasket will shrink back to normal size because it's not under suction anymore.

    I'm not sure how to post the picture I took but i show one I left out and one that is swollen up. I can tell when it's starting to happen when I fill the tank and have to push hard to get it to start screwing back on. Has anyone else had this issue or heard about it? It's very strange...

    is it the one on the bottom of the tank or the coil? I have replaced the ones on my coils for a better quality o-ring.

    It's the big one that is part of the bottom hardware. I know what you mean with the atty one but it's not that.

    Usually when you look at one they fit snugly and do not stick up over where the arty sits. The way mine have been getting they are really swollen and are almost growing big enough to push themselves off of the whole bottom piece. Imagine how a dry sponge is then how it looks wet.

    You can see it here. The left is normal and the right has swelled up. I know it's not on all the way but you can still see how much bigger it's gotten. That one on the left I had let sit just like that so it would shrink.

    I would say the one that is swelling is a Knock Off and not a really Aspire tank. Or it could be the juice you are using.

    I have both the standard, large, and Mini Nautilus and neither do this.

    I thought it might be too but I've checked them on Aspire's site and they are legit

    The juice I've been using since this happened is Ectoplasm from Fuzion Vapor
