Anyone know if the local big box stores carry the Nylon Flare washers needed to seal 1/4" flare fittings? Searched the web but can't confirm/deny. Thanks

No, flared fittings by there nature are designed to seal over the concave/convex surface, nylon washers are needed to make the difference in the Q.D. shorter length vs. the brass fittings the soda industry has used for years. That is why I am shifting to Push-Lock fittings.

I looked in a couple hardware stores, couldn't find them. Your best bet is you LHBS or online.

My local hardware store has them. Check a local place not a big box

Your local hardware stores are better than mine :(

I found plenty of 1/4" flare fittings, all brass, but no washers.
