I concur with taking that tube out of your braid. I run my mashes at 1.25 and have no problems with my braid. The only stuck sparge I've ever had was with my pumpkin ale, but that's another story!

Yeah the burst disc was probably just bad. It's rare but it does happen. I think the photo of the tank should be good enough for another swap. Good luck!
