    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?

    As long as they work, big deal, they just look like hell.

    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.
