Vasoline on O rings in a marine tank ??
I have been having a problem with O rings leaking on my Eheim 2227 wet/dry. I bought the unit second hand and am just learning the ins and outs of this unit.
I was told that "Vasoline" is recommended to control this problem with weeping O rings. I checked Eheim's web site and noticed that they sell "Eheim Vasoline" for their O rings. Can I use regular old Vasoline, the same stuff we've all had around the house for years, on my filter O rings without it causing a problem with any of the living creatures or bacteria in my system?
I also have a thick O ring lube/sealant that I use on the backyard pool filter but am afraid to use that stuff for my tank.
