Also, what do you recommend putting on the O-Ring to prevent it from drying out and leaking?
About once a month I will rinse my coarse pads in siphon tank water. As for the white pads well I found then to be expensive so I use filter floss instead and change it once a month. The substrate pro I only rinse if I see a lot of debris. The rings well I haven't put anything on mine yet. Hmmm maybe I should do that also?
