EXTENDED: You've got another week to add your travel & holiday deals questions for expert MSE Oli as part of the latest Ask An Expert event.
Kitchen mixer tap started to leak slightly, so bought a pack of assorted O rings and thought all would be fine.

Seemed to find a couple that fitted but then the tap wouldn't go back in because the O rings were very slightly thicker than the originals:mad: Then read on Google about how difficult it is to exactly match an existing O ring.

To cut to the chase would it be a better solution to buy a cheap tap rather than spending hours in a DIY shop trying to find an exact match, which probably doesn't exist anyway? Just seems a shame for the sake of a small bit of rubber.

Has anyone else experienced this?
