  • Where to buy teflon tape in Syd?

    Gday all

    I am in need of some teflon tape? to help with a leaky single wall basket conversion for my ristretto.
    The basket that I got actually has a thinner lip so when under pressure the water rises and drips - this drip goes into the shot and Im not overly keen on that.

    I was thinking that as teflon tape has been bandied around here as a fixer of just about anything I would try to source some and put it around the top of the PF to give the basket some height back.

    Any ideas on where to buy said tape - or any other suggestions for a fix? Remembering that we are talking a $79 machine, so nothing too extravagent!!

    Thanks in advance.

    Any hardware shop, plumbing supplies or similar. It might cost you as much as a whole $2

        Look in the plumbing section. Probably find some as cheap as 50c a roll.

          OK so finally got to go to bunnies today to look for some teflon tape..........

          Not much luck there, but I am wondering, this elusive teflon tape - is it just threading tape that you use when putting taps back on etc? If it is then that is good because I have tonnes of it, if not then is it universally known as teflon tape, or something else?

          Cheers from a man feeling a bit like a gumby at the moment.

            yep, very thin white tape on blue spool in white plastic surround: indeed the thin white stuff you use to wrap around water tap fittings and the like

                  i wont tell you how many times i have stood at the counter of a a shop trying to describe the item i wanted in different terms to what the shop assistants knew... :-[

                  being a Dutch woman trying to buy English named stuff in a technical shop environment is not always easy, albeit sometimes quite comical ( for others, that is ;D ;D)
