the previous lid collected mildew on the rim of the lid. The smoother inside finish of the new lid may prevent mildew from forming. Have you considered a non plastic lid - possibly light stainless? Santevia's response: Hello Les, Thank you for your feedback. We are constantly trying to improve our products. I will take your suggestion and pass it on to our Product/QA team! -Andre Customer Service Rep Santevia Water Systems

Replacement lid - fits the way it should
This new lid looks like it might be easier to clean. The old one has a rough inner surface and would actually mold and would have to be bleached to remove the mold. This new lid looks to be an improvement.
