Too much pressure in degas?

Hey everyone. Does anybody else have a degas bottle that looks bubbled up on top and looks like it has stress marks on top? Hope this in not a sign of trouble. Its been like this for a while, but I'm putting in a new radiator soon, should this be replaced too, or no big deal? If so anyone got a link to where one can be bought? thanks

nothing crazy, I can open it when its hot and its still only a hisses a few times as you open it slowly. Doesn't blow the cap off or anything as you take it off

It looks like stress cracks from internal pressure. Not a problem right now, if its not leaking, but it could be a problem in the future. I would look around for a new one or a good used one , I would certainly replace it before a long trip. I see a problem in the future , it will fail , usually at a bad time. Any cracks on the lower part?

Put some soapy water on it when its under pressure to check for leaks.
