The leak will more than not occur unless to stress the loop. So thermal cycling is a must. As the heat pressure build up in loop, the seal made by the o-ring should increase. So if the O-ring does not make proper contacnt, then as and pressure build it is gonna fail. Some people suggest making tightening the bottom, but that might put pressure on the acrylic and cause it to crack.
