    its bad ?

    ive used a leaky unicolor drum for years ( on and off )
    and when i purchased the roller and drums i contacted unicolor ( they were still around )
    and they told me it was in the instructions to smear a tiny bit of vaseline
    on the thin gaskets to keep them sealed ... ive been using it like that
    never a problem with contamination &c .. i figured
    if the company that made the tanks had it in their instructions
    it probably isn't bad ...

    thanks!
    and happy new year

    invert over a tray and measure the loss. Add extra next time or return the leaked amount to the tank.

    Do NOT store the tank with lid in place as it will become stretched.

    Buy a new tank.

    I have had stainless tanks for 50 years with no problems. Plastic has a like span
