There are many different ways for a diaphragm to fail from mishandling to aging due to chemical incompatibility.
The majority of diaphragm failures are related to aging or chemical
incompatibility. (To see an example of a failure click here: diaphragm failure) (If you'd like a full report on diaphragm failure types go here: diaphragm report.)
If you have a failed diaphragm that you would like us to analyze, then
