    Pulled 2 more cracked diaphragm support rings out of that same account yesterday. HO said he thinks they’re probably 12-15 years old.

    Thats not uncommon on a Toro 250 / 254 / 252 style valve. Normal service thing on them when older. The male threaded bodies also like to crack on the male threads.

    I’ve seen this cracking too. But Haven’t noted though any instances that the cracks are causing the valve to not operate. We usually have a valve weep, then we will switch out the top end all internal guts. I’m pretty certain this piece just keeps the diaphragm seated properly and not becoming deformed.
