    Silicone Lube on Brand New Pump and Union O-Rings?

    When you guys install brand new equipment do you lube the pump and union o-rings with silicone lube?

    Specifically, I'm talking about "Dow Corning 111 NSF/FDA Approved O-ring Lubricant."

    Yes. Even though they sometimes come pre-lubed it is good to be sure.
