Ball Lock Keg O-rings For Sale
When buying used pre-mix soda tanks, some of the seals are in less than perfect condition. I opened my own up recently and found the dip tube o-rings to be kind of gunky. I just needed the dip tube seals, but it seems that no-one really offers just those. I'd have to buy a whole kit, and you don't really find savings on ordering multiple kits. The lid o-rings tend to hold up rather well, so I don't anticipate needing one for some time. The bottom line is that I saw a number of needs that needed filled. Now I'm glad I can fill them.
Available for sale are full kits of Buna-N o-rings which include one lid o-ring, two post o-rings, and two dip tube o-rings. These are all the seals on a keg. I am offering one kit for $3, two kits for $5.50, three for $7.75, or four for $10. Not a huge savings at each step, but in this economy, every little bit helps. These fit ball lock kegs, I don't have any pin locks, so I don't feel comfortable selling pin lock kits just yet. Maybe in the future when I have something that I know I can test them on.
Because the dip tube o-rings are the first to wear out, followed by the post o-rings, I'm offering smaller kits as well. That way you don't end up replacing a perfectly good lid o-ring if you don't need to. A pack of post and dip tube seals with enough for 5 kegs or a pack of just dip tube seals for 10 kegs are each $3
You will see a paypal button in the sidebar that will be there permanently.
These will also be available on ebay, if you're worried about a blog not being a secure market place. Look for supramansquee as the seller.
I hope to be able to offer other products in the future, I don't think this will ever bloom into a full blown homebrew store, but I'd like to maybe sell some bottle caps and other items eventually. Comment below if there's anything you'd like to see sold here.
