I was taking apart my falso bottom and spigots on my two new coolers. I just bought these from a local guy here, and wondering how often you guys replace things like rubber gaskets and The high temp hose and such? How clean do you guys worry about getting these things. never did AG yet so I want to get started off right. Dont know if I should replace all this hoses and gaskets or not?

Since you don't know how old the parts are, it can't hurt to replace them. I have a weldless spigot on my sparge water pot that's 7 years old, seems to be fine.
