help please, leaking nautilus mini

My nautilus mini is gurgling, ejuice coming out of air flow vent, or spitting into mouth. I have blown it out, checked all parts and seals, emptied it, reassembled it and still ongoing. The eliquid is a 50/50 mix and all was fine until I refilled the tank. This has gone on all day!

Also found this:

Resolving gurgling

Assuming the atomizer has not failed, flooding and gurgling are commonly caused by:

  • E-liquid over-saturating the atomizer due to over-priming the atomizer or using a tight airflow setting.
  • Condensation developing under the drip tip, particularly in the chimney section.

    If you find your Nautilus floody or gurgling, try the following tip I adapted from RTA users:

    1 Roll a small square (e.g. 3" x 3") of paper towel to a blunt point, akin to a sharpened pencil.

    2 Remove the Nautilus drip tip, rinse it with warm water, then dry it thoroughly.

    3 If you are using a box mod, remove the Nautilus from the mod.

    4 Set the Nautilus airflow adjustment ring to the maximum airflow setting.

    5 Invert the Nautilus and insert the paper towel roll prepared in step 1 into the hole in the upper hardware where the drip tip connects.

    6 With the Nautilus remaining inverted, gently — very gently — blow into the airflow hole in the airflow adjustment ring. Repeat this step two or three times.

    7 Turn the Nautilus right-side up and remove the paper towel roll from the upper hardware. Use the clean end of the paper towel roll to remove any remaining e-liquid or condensation where the drip tip connects to the upper hardware.

    8 Reattach the drip tip to the Nautilus.

    9 If you removed the Nautilus from your mod, reconnect it to the mod.

That is an interesting link.

S/he says that the stainless steel drip tip supplied with the mini nautilus makes their lips chapped. I've been using that tip & have noticed chapped lips.

Any recommendations for a different tip & where to get it from (not fast tech, please as want one asap).
