They tend to survive a few years before it is time for a change. From the flow rate, I think it was slightly more serious than a valve leaking. The water came out rather more quickly than it went in...but then, it didn't come out as we were filling the container...I'll have to investigate this further. Thanks for the suggestion, anyhow! -- AnneJ You may search my time-worn face, You'll find a merry eye that twinkles. I am NOT an old lady Just a little girl with wrinkles! - Edythe E. Bregnard
