Title: O Rings and Rubber Washers
Post by: Mitch Leppicello on November 05, 2021, 10:50:36 am
Any good links for finding O-rings for picnic tap coupler connections? Seems I need to buy a new coupler but mine work fine - just missing those small o-rings/rubber washers. Can't attach a pic???

You can attach pic through a third party source (even facebook). You have to use some coding or the "IMG" button to the top left (under the "B" button)

i'm trying to understand if you simply need the "O" ring inside the QDC or what?

My local Ace hardware has a good selection of O rings.

Only problem, Ace Hardware may not be/probably are not food grade.

I don't know if that's an accurate assessment. Besides, not everything needs to be food grade.

I have used rubber o-rings from the hardware store before without problems. I just boil them in water for a few minutes to get rid of any rubber taste and smell.
