    that's the plan I think. At least as a trial.

    Leaky Jobo tanks can be easily cured with a short money fix - just install a new red rubber cap (get a couple for under 10$). They ware out over time, and a new one should be leak proof for quite some time.

    Mind was new and leaking, bought another and leaked too, bought a Paterson ... No leaks on all 3 because their caps allow for expansion from pressure, JOBO's don't.

    Actually, the Jobo caps have a push in section, which is designed to allow for expansion inside the tank. You push it in at the beginning of the cycle.
    Even brand new caps might be leaky and might need replacing... but if you found something that works (IE paterson), none of this really matters.

    Yeah I tried to releases much air as possible before I started however for some reason the Job is just never seem to do it they always bubble and let air out and let chemical out but the Patterson seem to be sealed tight tight. Assuming that you put it on correctly
