So I've just discovered that the lids in both my tlf 150 reactors are cracked! Anybody know where I can get replacements?

You could try silicon on them.

It might do the job as TLFs are not under pressure. I guess depending in where the crack is.

You could try email the makers... Maybe they can ship them to you.

Good luck.

It's just a hairline crack. It's been there for a couple weeks coz I've been getting air in the 2nd chamber. It's only just now it's become visible. No water is leaking, like u say they're not under pressure

I had a lid crack that allowed it to leak externally. It cracked between the threads, so not enough pressure on the o-ring
Julian sent me a replacement lid

Just be careful that you always keep the threads clear of any media and it's best to use some silicone lube on the o-ring, then just past hand-tight
I did this for a year and a half and a lid still eventually cracked, but I most likely over-tightened it at some time as I'm famous for making things 'Greg Tight' :rolleyes:

I'm selling a couple, one with a new lid, but shipping would be stupid for you

I'm sure Julian will take care of you
