Replace heads with missing tops

Do you replace rotors that are missing the rubber top cap? They usually still work, but I usually let the owner decide. What do you do?

Maxi/Mini-Paws work better without the tops.

If they work, leave em. Never knew any clients too concerned with the aesthetics of an in ground spray head.

No, unless I have some time to waste. IMO, it's not a problem that needs fixed.
