    The summer time is mold slime time for my stones. I need to change the water very frequently when the temps go up.

    Why would you perma-soak your stones? I keep mine stacked dry in a cupboard with a towel over them.

    some stones can have a greater tendency to fracture if you are constantly soaking them and then drying them if you do not take care to do it properly

    Performance and convenience...seriously, perma-soak = best thing for Bester 1200 in my experience. I think it was Dave that mentioned it a long time ago, and once I tried it, I haven't looked back.
