    Okay...so the Reo itself still works. The O ring in my bottle came out (no clue how, it just started leaking like crazy). I can't get the o ring back in! It is so frustrating. I can't get the ring back in the topper of my bottle. Any tips on how to get the o ring back on?

    What liquid were you using? The citrus oil in my Pluid expands my o-rings, they almost double in size and eventually just pop out.

    If your o-ring looks swelled or bigger, rinse it, dry it and put it in the microwave on the lowest power settings in 5 second bursts. It'll dry out and fit back in.

    You may have to wash it good and let it dry out. Sometimes, depending on the juice, it will swell up.

    Thats weird. It takes a little more force than.you'd think but mine pops right back in. It kind of locks into the groove in there. Maybe try folding it a little before you pop in up there. Its hard to explain while typing if it was in front of me i could show ya. (Haha) sorry, guess I'm not much help.. keep trying, you'll get it

    My love- Kawa Reo LP w/ TRA SL door & LokiLab Odin.. Mmm Mmm

    I blame the 'Beer.

    Pretty sure that's a plastic tank cranker, so if it can do that it wouldn't surprise me if it's messing up the o-ring. If you have flavors in rotation that are swelling the o-ring you want to get some spares.

    Speaking of: Anyone know if any of the different o-rings out there ala Home Depot won't have this problem? Think there are at least two different materials they are made from.

    You have to rinse and let it sit over night . I dont recommend microwaving any part of your reo

    just buy a new o-ring! ??

    I run some brutal crap thru my gear and an o-ring that lasts 5 weeks feels like a marriage!

    5 weeks?! Lol, are you vaping gasoline?
    On a serious note, are you vaping NT? I've not had to replace any orings at all in 5 months and I'm hoping not to. I run mostly NT juice, but occasionally others. I don't vape many cinnamon and never menthol, so I hope that reduces my chances of burning through rings.

    Y'know, the ingenuity of this group constantly amazes me. I swear if I posted that my reo had become sentient and was posting joke status updates on my Facebook, there'd be tree people replying within 10 minutes with solutions involving a nickel, some fabric softener (the sheets, not the liquid), and a push rod from a '57 chevy.
