Is it true that O-rings should last longer after the shafts have become smoother from use?

If so, would it help to polish the shafts initially with some kind of metal polish?

Are there longer-lasting O-rings available somewhere?

Thanks!

We are theorizing that smoother shafts make the orings last longer. We are currently polishing them with extra fine sandpaper before assembly. We are using the longest lasting orings. You can try polishing them but don't remove material, that will increase your fill times.
