Hi Amanda,

Urethane "belts" are also used as o-rings for hydraulic and pneumatic systems. Cheap, wide range of sizes and you can get them through industrial supply type places. In a more rural area you might try places that service hydraulics for agricultural or construction equipment.

Good luck,
