    Backplate O-rings

    Guys,
    I am about to become the owner of a few non solar units and just want to get settled in my mind where to get the O-rings and batteries when the time comes (even though it be down the road). I have no knowledge of this yet.
    Thanks in Advance.
    Craig

    PacParts is a good place to deal with for people in the states. Minimum shipping is maybe on the high side, something to think about. They take a few days to ship orders when the parts are in stock. Waiting for parts to come in can try people's patience, I've heard. I have had good experiences with them, but I just placed my first order where I have to wait for parts.

    Re: Backplate O-rings

    Yes, PacParts is a good place to get O-rings, but you will probably want to combine parts orders to keep the shipping cost down.

    I usually buy watch batteries and other coin cell or button cell batteries on eBay. Generally I use the Renata brand, since it seems to have a good reputation.

    You shouldn't need to replace the O-ring for every battery change, but you should put some silicone grease on it to keep it in good condition.

    Thanks for the parts info. but I do disagree regarding O-ring replacement.
    As I do when I work on the car, whenever releasing the compressive force on a gasket or O-ring the component should be changed. As with cars/watches the non-excessive compression forces on such components will cause deformity from their ideal/original configuration over time (loss of cylindrical state in the case of an O-ring) and if replaced microgaps can/will occur. Sealant grease is no guarantee against such gaps causing sealant failure.

    I must confess, I'm a bad person! I've only ever replaced one gasket in my time and that was because of my own carelessness on tightening the back and nipping the poor thing. However, I always takes the gasket out, clean it gently with a Q tip, and apply some 'gasket' silicon to keep it supple.

    Fleabay or Amazon for rings, if the batteries are 2016 or 2932 or 2025 you can find them locally at Wally world or even the grocery store. I get them at Shoprite for $2.99 2pack. Other off sizes are more difficult to source, but can be found. I use www.batterymart.com
