anyone by chance know what size O rings i need Everything is for 1/2 inch fittings not sure if i should get a size smaller to fit snug or just get 1/2 inch O rings
Wow, that's funny you mention that. It was my only problem with him too... except that I ordered extra O-rings and didn't get the extras, so it wasn't that big of a deal. He's a good guy though... just email him and let him know. He sent me the extra O-rings in a few days. No big deal. Sounds like he needs to have more attention to detail on these O-rings though!

They're special silicone high-temp O-rings, so you might not have an easy time finding them faster than he can ship them to you.

Good to hear! Glad that got worked out. Seems to be just as cheap to order from him than to put the parts together yourself.

Owner of Bargain Fittings here.

I apologize again for the error on the order!

I do seem to have an issue with o-rings. One of my concerns is placement of them so they don't get lost in the packaging.

From this point on I will print out packing slips and check off the order contents, bag and tape the o-rings to the valve/fitting sets so they don't get lost.

I appreciate the business you guys send me and hope to help out more of you in the future with your weld-less needs!

Thanks,
Wayne
