    Default O-Ring Spec for R58 Steam Tip?

    The o-ring on my R58’s steam tip has let go, I assume they are available for buttons on eBay etc. Anybody know the spec please?

    Hi, same here, I bought o-rings from all over but none of them could stand the heat generated from the steam arm.

    Give Bella Batista a call I'm sure they will have one or can give you the details you need as they are Rocket stockists

    Rubber is no good - silicone o-rings are necessary.

    Did this ever get resolved? If so how, might be useful info for others if having the same problem.

    BB were superb as ever, they sent me a new o-ring free of charge! It’s a bog standard o-ring, external diameter 8mm (internal 7mm) and you can find them on eBay if you should ever need one. Not sure if it’s rubber or silicone but I agree silicone would last longer.
