Was this purchased retail? If so, you might want to try returning it to the shop for exchange first.

Morning,

All of our markers, from Ethas through to CSLs, are tested extensively at the factory so it is very unlikely that the marker had a defective solenoid from the get go.

Admittedly, the leak that you have described sounds solenoid related, so could you remove the grip frame, then attach your tanks into the OOPS and slowly gas up the marker to ascertain exactly where the leak is coming from?

Finally, if you haven't already done so, please can you register your marker here for warranty: https://warranty.planeteclipse.com/site/signin. It's best to do it now in the event that you need the assistance of one of our Eclipse Service Centres.

check the internal 'microline' that runs from the hpr to see that it's getting a good seal around the input to the solenoid.

There is no LP hose leading to the Etha's solenoid, unlike on an Ego or Etek for instance. In that respect, the Etha is more like the Geo - the air supply to the solenoid is via an air gallery drilled in to the body itself.

Good to hear. Just another reason to go with Planet Eclipse and why I ordered my Etha this weekend.
