    Silicone Grease (Where Can I Find It)

    I am looking to buy some silicone grease to use in lubricating the rubber seal in the plunger of a floor pump I have. Can somebody please point me in the direction of where to look?

    Thanks.
    Regards,

    Jed

    I typically buy it at well-stocked Ace hardware stores.

    You could also try auto supply stores.

    Ace should carry it - ask for plumber's grease, that is usually a silicone compound

    Get a bicycle. You will certainly not regret it, if you live.

    Most sporting goods stores should have it. It is what you use to lube fishing reels with.

    I use automotive doorlock grease, comes in a handy tube. Get it from an automotive parts store.

    Thank you all for the responses. I went to Ace Hardware and bought plumber's grease. It was actually explained to me that plumber's grease is better than silicone grease (for my need), as plumber's grease is heat resistant, while silicone grease is not. It was also cheaper.
