I don't see your location.Around here (central IL) we have farm stores and hardware stores ( not the big box places) that have drawers and drawers of O-rings.About any size you need for .05-.25 cents each.If you have an Ace Hardware around there they usually have them ,just not as many.Maybe check wit a restaurant supply place if there is one in your area.Looks similar to a commercial faucet to me.Just a contractor .Not a plumber.

I'm out left in nippy San Francisco.

I had raided Home Depot and bought a bunch of o-rings and 1 was close but it's loose sitting on the piston and too big to fit back into the chamber it sits in.

Thanks for the tip about Ace Hardware. I'll give them a shot and Ferguson too.

Buying a kit might be cheaper than running from store to store. This kit comes with glue so you can make your own odd size.

Alright, I got it fixed. Turns out there was a faulty o-ring that sits on the piston. The caliper measure the inner diameter of the o-ring to be 1/4 in. and I forgot the outer diameter. The pain was assembling the handle properly so that water didn't shoot out from all the possible openings.

All's well that ends well, thanks for the update.
