Flooding occurs generally if you draw too hard. If this happens, you can try unscrewing the DCT, grab a tissue and hold it on the threaded part of your tank. Blow through your tip to get any liquid that is in the cartomizer out.
Another method you can try is push the tank up to where the bottom rubber seal blocks the slits of your cartomizer and engage your device for approximately 3 seconds. You can repeat the steps a couple of times to burn off some of the liquid. Once you notice the "gargling" effect minimized, you can push the tank back into place and go back to vaping happy!
