Because an O-ring seal is dynamic, I don't think that's a worry.

Response to The plurality of the leak joint(s)

So long as the preload is sufficient to form an initial seal when the valve closes, then the pressure differential will deform the O-ring to either complete the seal at pressure, or fail in extrusion.

Preload/initial_squeeze isn't what creates an O-ring seal. It just gets it started. Right?

Steve
