I bought a couple like 8 months ago and some more a week ago. I attached a picture so you can see how they look from the outside. (sorry about the glass in the middle of the picture)

from the inside they look good & clean. I haven't replaced any seals (o-rings) yet as they work fine but I will replace them at some point, they don't cost much.

I can show you one before you buy them if you like.

Cheers,
Jose.

Hi Darren,

I bought a few of them from the homebrew company and they are all in good working conditions. I'm happy with them :)

Cheers,
Jose.


Great, had a chat to them and they say they wash and pressure test but don't service/replace seals.
What was the general quality like? did you need new seals? And how long ago did you buy them?


Well ordered a 3 in the end, they arrived highly pressurised, and as far as I can see the seals are intact and in won't need much servicing, they were covered in stickers, but after a good scrubbing and cleaners they have come up nicely.

Took quite a bit of scrubbing:
1. washed with warm soapy water and got most of the label off,
2. scraped off most of glue with blunt plastic edge.
3. used some meth spirits to get more of the glue off.
4. scrubbed with bath cleaner/ cream
(repeated a few times)
