I've got a couple of the MR5 DIY reactors; one of which has a slight leak coming from between the acrylic tube and the lower flange at the top of the reactor. Any suggestions for how best to repair?

BTW - Love the reactors, only recommendation would be to put two screw-on connectors (instead of one) like those on the larger models.

Hi Ben,

The best way is to try and get a bead of glue on the inside seam. I realize this is a little harder on the small size do to the diameter and hand size. Let me know if you think you can do this.

Thanks for the tip. The leak is at the top flange, so access won't be an issue.
