well i am not sure about that kind of bag, but something that helps my seal stay longer is to use the hair dryer on it after i put it on.

is it leaking or or you having some reminents (sp) when u go to empty again? i ususally put a little piece of papertowel on the end of my tail before i roll it up to absorb any little bit of liquid. Do u think u have a bad batch of bags?

you could also have a teeny tiny hole in the plastic part of the tail, i have had that problem before. i had a bad batch of bags. Or like praying said, sometimes if i try to do it too quick and dont' get it cleaned out good, some leaks out.

thanx praying and summer
the stoma nurse told me the salts bags i have are a new product on the market
when i emptied last night i noticed the plastic lining on the drain end comes apart from the bag and this is what causes the leak sad
my nurse ordered me sample packs last week that are due to arrive today and i believe they are a different brand so hopefully these will work better
guess its all a matter of trial and error
take care andreach :-)
