I know little about "food grade lubricants", but I do know that when I had the bright idea on a new Camelbak Antidote Bladder to add Vaseline around the O-Ring to make for a quicker disconnect/connect back when cleaning, I learned a lesson the hard way this past May'13 on my six day Sierra Ancha Camping-Hiking trip needing to once again learn to juggle quart water bottles due to the Antidote O-Ring totally disintegrating on my hiking Day #1Bradshaws wrote:I found a quick fix for my 3L Antidote bladders leaking quick disconnect.. Then I added just a tiny bit of "food grade lubricant" to the "O"ring, just enough to make it shiny. No leaks..
You can get it at most outdoor stores in the meat processing areas and some grocery in the canning area. It's 2-3 dollars. I use it on hand crank meat grinder to keep it from rusting ;)Grasshopper wrote:I know little about "food grade lubricants"
