There had to have been a leak somewhere, probably at the collection bin. I have the SDD XL and a 3HP motor with no issues and it is connected directly to the top of the SDD XL. Once you have your system together, to test for leaks, get a candle and light it for a bit, then blow it out and use the smoke from the wick to go slowly around the dust collection bin seal, you’ll be able to see the smoke get sucked in if there is a leak. The biggest thing with these SDD’s is they can have ZERO leaks to work properly so do a good check.
