Hello David,

On my set for the Stag. there appears to be a third hole. (Closer to the
top). This third hole goes all the way through to the mixing chamber and is
only partially covered by the disc. I'm thinking that this is a place where
air from the outside can be drawn in and the gasket will help here.
