The following applicable components must be inspected weekly for perceptible liquid and vapor leaks and for proper operation, as required by section 232-3.5 of this Subpart, during that portion of the machine cycle that the component is utilized. The status of each applicable component must be recorded on a checklist supplied by the department along with the date of inspection and inspector's initials. Completed checklists must be kept on-site for at least five years from the date of inspection:
(1) hose and pipe connections, fittings, couplings and valves;
(2) door gaskets and seatings;
(3) filter gaskets and seatings;
(4) pumps;
(5) solvent (including spent solvent) tanks and containers;
(6) water separators;
(7) stills; and
(8) cartridge filter housings.
(b) Any perceptible leak, or malfunction, that has been detected by the operator must be noted on the checklist and repaired immediately, if possible. If the leak cannot be repaired at the time of detection, the leaking component must be physically marked or tagged in a manner that is readily observable and repaired within 24 hours of detection, unless repair parts are unavailable. Should repair parts be unavailable, the machine must be repaired as soon as practically possible.
