Forum rules
1) Please search :pray: before posting. Note that you should also search content-relevant forums (like Food & Drink for those items, and not just WCIF). If there is a content-relevant forum, the thread should be there, not here.

2) Please append your request to an existing thread if you find a stale one, rather than starting a new one. :pray:

3) Please post separately :pray: for each search item, not one thread for "olives and sour cream". Two threads, one for each. This makes it much easier for the moderator to merge your thread with an existing one, if any.

Of course, if you still can't find what you're looking for, please do feel free to post, and we'll do our very best to help you find what you need. If you have any trouble using the search function or the forum, please don't hesitate to send a PM (private message) to the Where Can I find...? moderator asking for help. Happy posting!!! :rainbow:

O-rings (camelbak or other)

I am looking for a store that sells o-rings, I need a replacement for a Camelbak bladder. Anyone have any idea where there is a store that sells o-rings?

You can pop by our garage and sort through our box of 'O' rings if you like. Do you know which size you need?

There is an outdoor shop that sells camelbacks for 350nt near Zhishan. They don't sell parts though. Its pretty cheap price for a camelback though. Near Exit 2, left across the street from the MRT Exit.

I went to this shop today and they do not sell any Camelbak products, in fact when I asked them if they do they had no idea what Camelbak products are. They had 2 bladders (only 2). One Nalgene for $1400NTD 80oz size and a locally made one that I think was 2 litres for $550NTD nothing even close to $350.

There are a few stores that sells nothing but O rings on Chende Rd near Mingchuan E. Road MRT Station, take your broken O ring with you so they can find you one that is like it.

Oops, I made a mistake, it is not a 'camelback' brand, but a bladder system. I bought it about a year ago and that was the price I paid, maybe they raised their prices since then. The one I have is made in Taiwan. Sorry for the misinformation and I hope it didn't waste too much of your time.

I wrote to Camebak (the international warranty office is in Italy). It looks like they will send me 2 o-rings for free. So if you have an issue with Camebak write to them you never know :cool:
