    Sta-rite Max-e-therm manifold removal/replacement question

    HI all, I have a Sta-rite 200 and need to replace the manifold bypass valve which requires removing the manifold and reinstalling. My question is will I need to replace the coil/tube sheet o-rings and manifold o-ring as well? Thanks so much in advance!

    Never done the job personally, but my vote is yes. Replace any O-rings you disturb.

    From my experience working on cars, I can say that O-rings will get stiff and take a set and won't reseal well when reused.

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.

    +1 to what Richard said. It's best to always replace O-rings. If it's good for fuel or A/C applications, I think it applies to everything

    But then again... I always like putting new stuff in

    I always replace the o-rings and the thermo regulator as part of this type of job.
