Between my fermenator, and the weldless connections for boiling pots and such, I have a few items that use those orange hi temp o rings. Since there may be a time that I would need to replace one, and knowing I wouldnt want to have to wait a week to order one online, I am trying to figure out what kind of business would carry them. I know they were not invented soley for homebrewing; in fact, Im pretty sure they were found and adapted from existing use. So, if anyone can tell me where they may have found these things, ie hardware, plumbing, specialty store, I would sure appreciate it. I would like to find a local source ahead of any need for them.
I know i can order spares when I buy the componants, and have, but I would still like to be able to get one if im in a middle of something and have the need.
Any and all input appreciated.
I bid you all a great day! (we got 6 inches of snow over the weekend)
