I would not do anything to the container. If oil wont leak through it, then something thicker like water certainly wont. The oil containering company
has a lot at risk in the way of liabilities if it leaks. I Think they know what they are doing. In screwing (pun intended) with their design, you may in fact actually introduce a problem.

Just use the container for what is was designed to do - keep one liquid and another liquid out.

That's what I going to do suck it and see . Although I think water is thinner than oil not thicker .

The lid will only leak if it's at he opposite end to the anchor point.

Is that because the air wants to be at the top ? That was my thought

Think it s that the pressure applied to the container forces air out. Your cap may be liquid tight rather than gas tight.

If the cap is under water then you need to squeeze the air out and let water in. Not impossible. But test it with an empty shampoo bottle loosen the cap and put it cap down and it probably won't fill with water. Now try other way up just dipping the cap..

But bear in mind you will have a lot of wave action squeezing and shaking.

Might have known you would give a well thought concise explanation
