I am going with the 100 interval for changing the fluid and the rollers and the filter. I figure if they figure 150 is the normal interval, Then I am just assuming that the last third of the life of the rollers in the fluid would have fairly dirty water and rollers. In relation of the cost of the machine versus my record collection it’s a small investment change every hundred. As far as the draining I have to agree it wasn’t a very well thought out design, so I have discovered that three-quarter inch PVC pipe fittings work. I have a couple of the fittings but haven’t come up with a suitable valve yet.What I do in the meantime is turn on the machine and let it run one cycle without a record to keep things lubricated, wet and mixed up look for longer periods I drain it into canister. Otherwise I am very happy with the machine and convenience vs the VPI 16.5 I used for years.
