Learn how to properly maintain your O-rings and what to do if you get water in your Tarsacci....

Also to add to the above, DO NOT USE VASELINE on your rubber O Rings. Use divers silicone.

One last tip.....DO NOT (as I did in the beginning because I was being pedantic) put a huge plastic screen cover on and tape it. Apparently there is a tiny, tiny vent hole on the unit.....which I inadvertantly covered. Heat built up in the unit and it went rather haywire with numbers of the settings and was unusable/unstable.

 Very good point Teresa!

Yes Vaseline will in some cases even MELT plastics. Thank a lot for the vent hole tip, I didn’t even know that!

I dunno exactly, but Dimitar told me I had covered it with tape! Anyway, needless to say, I havent put tape on again.
