You must not have a MM pump, since you'd be re-filling the reservoir away 
from the pump itself... and in this case, if the reservoir leaked when you 
re-inserted the it, then you haven't tightened the Luer lock enough. Maybe 
someone with more knowledge of the Disetronic can provide some better help. 
Have you tried calling Disetronic directly??
