    Default Washer For Hard Water?

    Are there any washers and O rings recommended for hard water areas?
    Normal washers here don't last long.

    Have you tried the HydroSeal tap washers with the o rings, or changed to a ceramic disc spindle?

    I get at least 10 years + out of hydroseal jumper valves.

    As for O rings for the spindles nothing special needed

    Your tap washers are not lasting because you are using soft rubber washers possibly with worn seats and turning the taps off too tight and squashing the washers.
    It can also depend on age and wear of the taps themselves, they don't last forever.

    Screw these into your tap seats and use good quality washers and your problems will be over - * Kit with 2 seats https://www.bunnings.com.au/hydrosea...t-kit_p4902119 * 6 pack of seats https://www.bunnings.com.au/hydrosea...-pack_p4902127
    Never argue with idiots, they will drag you down to their level and beat you with experience.
