    Hi everyone

    I was looking at some of these on ebay for under 2 quid for over a dozen.
    Does anyone else use alternative ones to youngs who charge a small fortune for just one?

    Im not going to risk a bad brew though so if buying this one is the only option so be it

    Cheers

    Please clarify which o-rings you mean. Are you referring to where the float assembly connects to a top tap on a King Keg pressure barrel?

    Lidl and Aldi both sell a selection of "O" rings of various sizes for peanuts. Unless you are lucky, they won't be in store at the moment but they will come round sometime in the next 12 months!

    However, for a "quick fix" you could always try Screwfix who sell a similar variety ...

    ... or Wickes or B&Q.

    The secret is to know the diameters of both the "O" Ring itself and the rubber it's made from.
