Wher do you get PVC over 2in

Unread postAuthor: bigbob12345 » Sat Dec 01, 2007 10:21 am

I am just wondering where everyone gets pressure
rated PVC that is larger than 2in.
I have checked for it in just about every hardware/home improvement store.
that is around here and found only 1 that has over 1in but it only went
up to 2in.
So please help me with this

No usually lowes or homdepot dont sell pressure rated fittings over 2 inches. So you would have to go to a private plumber's store or something similar and they should have it.

Homedepot and Lowes will have pressure rated pipes over 2 inches but not fittings.

sounds damn easy for you americans to get all sorts of PVC parts. :wink:

in the north of norway where i live we have to get the parts from huge storages (usually there are some spare PVC there) or at plumber-stores (wich are RARE. i`ve only seen ONE my whole life :lol: ) but its god damned expensive there :(

i`ve only bought 2 parts for spudgun purposes ever :D

most hardware stores and plumbing supply houses should carry it, there are numerous places online you can order from as well. a quick search brought up this. remember the search button can be your friend.

You should never use a reducer just because it's weak, use a coupler bushing setup.

Definatley ACE Hardware they do always have really good stuff, plus they have all brass fittings for pilot valves and what not, and bbq ignitors and propane stuff.

Yea, that's definitely going to get you at least a tazer.

I misread it-I thought you said 2" pvc, not OVER 2". Ace has some parts, not much though. Best bet is online at mcmaster.
