O-ring for my riptide pump.  I was hoping to brew this weekend after a blown element and SSR last week.  I have to see if I can get one of the backup pumps installed.  I will have 3 spares once my order comes in.

I wouldn't have known until it was too late. As in the day my pump decided to seize mid brew.

I was running hot PBW through it and noticed a drip ... drip .. drip.  Tightened the tri-clamp up and nothing.  Then I took the clamp off and the pieces fell out.

 

I took 3 other pumps apart hoping the o-ring would be the same size... they were not!

No. One LHBS that would order it but I can do that myself. I searched to find a size because I would have gone to Grainger but no luck. So instead of brewing I will run wire for a new mini-split AC. Probably a better use of my time.
