    This might appear to be a daft question, but the large rubber washer for the pump. Is it normal when You tighten the ring that the rubber bulges out and the edges come apart? Because You have to hand tighten tthis seal quite a bit before pressurising....
    I imagine that over time You are left with a very thin seal as the washer shreds away!

    Daft question. Are you certain you’ve got the old washer removed? The seal should be seated some way into the knurled collar.
