    The lids for my 5 gallon jugs have been taken off so many times for refilling that they leak really badly because the gaskets are either cut or bunched up.

    I'm having trouble finding replacements, so I thought maybe someone here could help :)

    Thanks!

    Online homebrew supply places have rubber corks that fit 5 gallon carboys. Also, chemistry supply shops should have them.

    I have seen them at Wal Mart in the hardware\plumbing area. I don't know how WW is layed out in your area, but you may try.

    I would like to meet the genius that said "Hey, instead of putting these by the water, lets put them in the hardware isle!".

    You may also try calling Culligans or any of your other local water delivery buisnesses.
