Default Looking for o-rings

I'm looking to add an element to my kettle and hlt cooler. However Im only seeing o rings in packs of 25. Why spend 10-12$ for two o rings?

Anyway I was wondering if anyone has a cheaper source. Or better yet maybe someone bought a pack and wouldn't mind selling one or two?

As always, thanks for everyone's help

Do you know what part # or size you need?

Try here if you don't have the stainless locknuts you can get them there to.

Damn. Just ordered some fittings from them too. Didn't even think about adding the lock nuts and o rings.

Thanks

You see O-rings in packs of 25 because it's not economical to package one or two. The bag would cost far more than the O-rings inside.

But most auto parts stores have a master O-ring set. Just ask the clerk behind the counter & he will pull out a box of nicely sorted O-rings. Select the size you want & pay.

I don't believe there is such a thing as food grade O-rings.

They will be neoprene just like the ones you buy on-line.

likely just a nitrile oring anyways. go to TSC or hardware store and buy a couple. you can also buy oring kits with 20-30 different sizes.
