Buy on Ebay: Made in China Washers for the Garden
We recently had a hose bibb, the garden water faucet, replaced, and this new one has already started leaking. I fixed it with a 00 washer, but it wasn’t the right size. It went onto the handle all messed up.
Eventually, I found the right item.
There are not widely sold in the US.
Most hose bibbs on the west coast use the 00 washer. I think if the valve is made in the USA, it’s 00. Now, 00 is a weird size, being slightly less than 1/2 inch, but the 00 washer is as common as pennies.
Then along comes this new thing.
If you find that the 00 doesn’t fit right, try out these washers. $1.50 for three, delivered by mail.
