I recently repaired some tap tails which leaked. The original o rings had failed,and I removed the rings from some new tails I purchased.I now need to replace the o rings.I went to James Hargreaves who were unable to help.I have two questions

1.Can I use PTFE tape instead of an O ring?
2.What size of ring do I need and where can I purchase, please? I know Toolstation sell a mixed pack.
Thanks

1. No
2. You dont say what size of tail and shame you didnt measure a new O-ring before fitting.

I have found an identical set of tails and measure the o-rings as 8mm.
