    Paramount PCC2000 - Tip - Gasket Stretched on Opening Dome/Valve

    Hi,

    If you need to remove the top dome from a PCC2000 system to access the valve, you MAY want to ensure you have a replacement gasket on hand. A gasket costs about 12 bucks.

    I just opened mine for the first time in a year or 2 and found the gasket had somehow stretched by at least an inch. It just will not fit back in the groove to allow the dome to be replaced.

    I have opened the dome a couple times previously over the last 10 years without changing the gasket. This is the first time the gasket has stretched.

    So... I am now in a holding pattern waiting for another gasket to arrive before I can run the cleaner.

    If I had known I would have ordered the gasket to be on-site before opening the dome.

    HTH,

    No prob.

    I have no idea what would make a gasket stretch like that.

    Paramount do mention in one of their support videos, "replace the gasket if it is stretched or worn".
