Here and there you can tell if the elastic can fold no more fixing just by what it would seem that; conspicuous signs of this would be splits or tears in the elastic. If you can’t tell, take blue sustenance shading and squirt in a couple of drops.

After 15 minutes, on the off chance that you have any blue in the dish, you have a hole.

Settling this is as straightforward as supplanting the elastic fold. That is it!
