I think I just impressed myself by posting both pictures!! Lolol. 

You can clearly see the reasons I question using these Lot numbers listed in the first post about them!  Lol, I can't believe I posted the pics, thats a first!!  My brain must be waking up from the concussions!  Lololol

I've been seeing more reports of Hollister bag failures, even on my YouTube comments.

In addition to changing the plastic used on these bags a few years ago, I wonder if they also changed how they are manufactured. Failures seemed exceedingly rare 3+ years ago, so *something* must have changed.

That said, after the last box of defective bags, I haven't had any issues.

After the first box of defects, I haven't had any issues. But I do test them now, by plugging the small hole in the back of the wafer (before I cut a larger hole), fill the bag with air, and squeeze to see if any air escapes.

I only got 76 hours (81 the one before that) on my last appliance.  I'm hopeing that was more of a fluke or the paste I added.

27 hours in this last one.  I may have put the convex ring too tight.  Trying the same set up but without the bottom part.  Ring, convex ring, wafer and pouch extenders.  We'll see how this works.

I've had about 3 defective bags recently.  A small leak at the drain.  Very small but starts to show on about day 3.

Sounds similar to the issue I was having. Let them know, and you may get a replacement box.
