Beambox laser tube cracked

Hello,

Just a moment ago I was asking a small question, and now I’m asking a much more serious one: it seems the laser tube has a crack on one end. When I pump water through the system it leaks from here. It’s the end closer to the touchscreen.

I started by filling the water tank, turning on the pump–rinse and repeat until the water level of the tank stayed consistently full. I then briefly ran a test file, which was not working, so I stopped the test, turned off the machine, and opened up the back again. The tank was about half full, so I filled it up and ran the pump again. However I quickly noticed that this crack had appeared. Why did this happen? Has anyone else seen this?

Thank you
