17. Moisture in grease – when do seals have to be replaced?

Grease coming out the lube hose is usually light gray. A few droplets of water coming out of the hose is to be expected but any more than that usually means, that the seals are leaking and should be replaced. If you grease after the days use, so that the bearing is not stored with moisture in it, you can delay replacement until it is convenient.
