I have a stainless domed false bottom for my round cooler.
I used it for quite a while. Never could get the wort to run clear, and I had to run off real slow or else I'd get a stuck sparge.
I started to put the grain a grain bag in the tun with the false bottom. I got a much clearer run off, and if the sparge stuck I could just lift out the grain bag.
Finally I got smart and switched to a hose braid, wish I would have done that from the start. But I had some fool idea that I wanted to fly sparge and just had to have the false bottom.

My experience exactly.

He didn't say everything was worse, just not the same.  He might be okay.  he might have to buy another ring though.   ;)

Bought 4 faucets for my kegerator tower, but I purchased chrome plated ones that have the spring in them that make it so you dont accidentally leave one open. It was a terrible purchase. I finally upgraded to some 525SS perlicks and things are much smoother and more importantly, no more sticking faucets after a couple days non use!

Ya get what ya pay for.

Additionally, every bottle ever that I purchased or saved and then cleaned for reuse was a giant waste of time. Kegging is much better :)
