Default Cleaning hardware

I'm currious to know...

When it comes to your bulkhead, washers, o-rings, and ball valve do you;

A) Remove and clean them all for every brew?

B) Remove and clean them every now and then?

C) Never remove any of it and just rinse it out in its installed position?

C.

(unless I have a reason to believe that it needs to be torn apart.)

This is what I do too! I just started wondering if I should remove and clean every once in a while..

Yeah, i'm an option C guy myself. This is mostly due to laziness but I have wondered about this. I'm thinking that I'll do it if I have reason to believe that there are nasties in the threads, I brewed something that left a nasty sticky film in the kettle, or I need basement time away from the wifey.
