    Need an O-ring

    I have a Spears PVC white schedule 40 union. The o-ring needs to be replaced and I canít find the right size in any store around here. I imagine I can find them online but I am not even sure what the size is. If I order online I canít just bring the part into the store. Does anybody know the size and a good place to buy them?
    Thank you,
    Jim

    I can't tell where you are, but I would suggest a place that sell irrigation/sprinkler supplies. Find one of those or hardware store that carries Spear, and you'll find one. There is a chance you'll have to buy a union and rob the seal.

    Check your local auto parts stores, they usually have large selections of O-rings.

    O-rings are usually measured by inside diameter and cross section size. To order online I'd measure the groove ID that the o-ring fits in and the cross section and match those as closely as possible.

    Thanks guys. The manufacture emailed me back with O-ring: E-328 EPDM O-RING 1-7/8X2-1/4X3/16 . or BUNA O-RING 1-7/8X2-1/4X3/16 IDXODXW. I think I found it on Amazon so I will know in a couple days.
