Best Place to buy Avon Searider Valves

2 of the valves on my Avon Searider are leaking. The caps are missing and I can't seem to be able to obtain the caps without having to buy the whole valve unit. Where is the cheapest place to buy the valve unit? (Living in Cork, Ireland so if in UK, will need to be on-line/mail-order.)

Polymarine distribute valves (and caps) if that helps. They certainly distribute Leafield.
