  • stupid cleaner tank

    for 2 weeks now I have been getting drips on the lane and puddles when I lay my machine down.. started off minor .. thought it was a bad fitting... finally yesterday I took it apart because it was constant .. could locate it till I did a pressure test.. looked like a scratch right by the in tank filter.. new tank won't be here till Monday so... got out my hobby glue and patched it up... I wonder how long it was like that.. Minor drips since installation.. I thought it was oil spray originally from the brush.. wow... I should be more inquisitive!!!!

    Do you fill the tank before you put it away?

    It might help if you run the cleaner out as much as possible before standing the machine up for transport.

    Good luck on the fix!
