Under normal conditions, elbow probes and bushing inserts should last as long as elbows. However, there are a few signs that indicate when the probe and/or bushing insert should be replaced.
Nothing can be more aggravating when installing elbows, than the probe not wanting to screw into the connector properly. When elbow probes do not screw into the connector properly during installation, it is usually more of an alignment issue than a thread issue.
