    we could nver find any water wigglers from were we live. we've looked in stores everywhere. we finaly got some online from the states which costed a hefty price. so i was just wondering incase we lost one or it broke for some reason if we could get one out here.

  2. if you can't find them you can always use a ziplock bag with water in it might want to double it up.

    I took out my vacuum sealer and sealed up some water, folded it over and put the thermo probe in between.

    I sure couldn't find any either.

    Ended up cutting a hole in the end of a plastic easter egg (to fit probe through), then snuggled a balloon with water in it (to fill egg) around the probe inside the egg and taped it shut. I believe it works pretty well. The hardest part is experimenting with exactly the right amt of water to get the balloon to fill the egg, and then getting the egg closed afterwards [​IMG]

    Good luck,

    My ziplock bags kept leaking. I finally tried an old pill bottle filled with hair gel [​IMG]

    It worked great.
