    hey new here, from Richmond, Va.
    past few months i have taken 12" rotors right out of the box and only to have the cap threads spew water. yesterday i had 5 we just put in the ground do the same thing.
    I have also noticed that the regular pgp i have seen, in the 5 years old range same type of thing one yard no problems, next one 5 - 10 heads spewing
    anyone else seeing this?
    tired of putting teflon on the threads

    We have been installing PGP and I-20 heads for 15+ years and have only had a hand full of problems. I always hand tighten the tops of the heads because sometimes they do come from the factory not tight.

    By all means let Hunter know. They are very conscientious about what goes on out in the field from those of us in the profession. You can go to their website and send them a note. Someone always gets back in a short time, at least they always have with me.
