The white hard plastic gaskets in my cheap multi piece ball valves (I got them used) are damaged and collecting more yuck than I'd like. I don't know where to buy spares (both of them have different white plasticy gaskets). I'd like to buy a few good quality ball valves from a vendor that carries replacement parts (gaskets). Any reccommendatons?

You might be able to find replacement parts for large industrial-grade valves but for our 1/2" valves, which are basically just plumbing fittings, I think you'll be hard pressed to find any replacement parts at all. They'd probably cost you more than a complete valve replacement in any case...

I didn't realize that. Thank you.

It just pains me to discard an otherwise serviceable piece of equipment over a wear and tear part that probably costs pennies.

I guess I'll just buy some new ones though, rather than risk a ruined batch.
