Re: Stuffing box maintenance - interval
On the PSS seal....
As with any rubber hose below waterline, the PSS bellows must be inspected on a regular basis for any sign of wear, aging or chemical deterioration. PYI suggests preventative maintenance. The PSS bellow should be replaced in six year intervals. During bellows replacement it is recommended the o-rings & set screws in the stainless steel rotor also be replaced.
Looks like there is maintenance that needs doing. And I am over due. Thanks MarkSF for the heads up.
