Who carries plastic dip tubes?

I have one that is bent, and leaks. A metal tube won't fit in.

I assume you are talking liquid side? If so, I have never run across them. If it is the gas in, then Williams Brewing carries them.

Chicompany has them too. But from what I researched some replacement plastic ones don't fit certain kegs. Seems the best way is to drill the hole bigger and use a standard stainless dip tube.

I have never seen plastic liquid dip tubes. I agree, if you can't find one at all or for a good price open up the ID with a drill.
