A picture - or a video might be helpful. I might suggest you talk to the company - and perhaps get a new o-ring. It is also possible that there is damage to the plastic somewhere or - its not sealing correctly (I'm not sure how the 2 pieces connect - twisting, etc - but could there be a piece of debris or something else
