Re: Resealing/Replacing Beckson Ports?

Put someone outside with hose, someone inside with a towel. Peek and poke, try to confirm just where the leaking is. Before you buy new seals, you could try a cheap seal like window putty/gasket rope from the hardware store, just put a thin layer in over the existing gasket and if that's the problem, it should stop the leak, at least the first time you close it. Still leaking? Then it probably is the port itself.
