Pots may become brittle with age and develop cracks which lead to leakage. To replace the pot successfully please observe the following tips:

Remove all the existing pot and silicone sealant that has adhered to the pot recess moulding. Abrade the pot recess moulding where the replacement pot will be in contact and clean that area with acetone. Silicone sealant does not seal very well with the material our pots are made from so we overcome this by adding a wrap of deck patch material around the pot where it will be in contact with the deck moulding. Ensure the fit of the pot is good without any distortion before attempting to seal the pot in place. The correct silicone sealant to use is the one that smells strongly of acetic acid (vinegar). Choose the clear version. No other types will work. The one we have in the workshop is a B&Q product labelled ‘translucent all purpose, waterproof, flexible, mould resistant’. The instructions/data printed on the package indicate it gives off acetic acid when curing. Buy the 310 ml size. Apply the sealant to both surfaces where they will touch and push the pot into place. Remove excess sealant and allow to cure. When cured add 2 or 3 screws through the pot and into the pot recess moulding so that the lid can be firmly screwed in place without disrupting the seal between pot and deck.
