Emperor 400 leaking onto the floor from the o-rings on the bio wheel sprayer.

Did a search and found out that the o-rings cost $4, then they want $10 shipping. I can get these at the hardware store for much cheaper. Can anyone tell me what size o-ring I need before I damage mine to check the size.

Best bet would be to go to their site and look at the replacement o-rings. They should say the dimensions of the o-ring on there. And if they don't, then that's how they get ya.

Wow guys, thanks for the quick response. The problem with that is, to get it off I might dammage it and then I am stuck without a working filter. At least now it only drips every minute so I can keep a towel under it and change out the towel daily.
