Did it do that before or after you pulled it off, or has that never been installed?

I ruined one like it that way when I first started using them, even though I read the instructions saying not to get them wet.

Carefully applied clear packing tape will help delay that happening from general washing/soaking. I dunno about soaking for a long period.

It gives you about 12-24 hours more life, trust me.
I keep them at about the 5g mark, and never fill the water bath above 4 g mark... After destroying a couple first.
