Shop in Canada?

Unread postAuthor: Philbob1 » Mon Jun 02, 2008 7:09 pm

I was wondering if anyone knew a shop for pipes/fittings in Canada.

Because McMaster is going to cost about twice the price in shipping cost.

Thanks

EDIT: I dont know if I'm in the right topic tho. Correct me if I'm wrong.

What you might try and do is open your yellow pages (or Candanian equivalent) and chase up local pipe stores. So look under things like: hardware, irrigation, sprinkler, etcetera.

Or simply Google the type of store you are looking for and in which area.

BTW, your thread is in the right spot. Good job!

I get all my pipe from TSC. It is the cheapest place i can find pipe here. They only cary presure rated PVC up to 1.5 inches though. Good selection of solid core ABS though.

Howellpipe.com

You need not try anywhere else. Any fitting you could dream of with ratings up to 6kpsi, pipe from 1/8" to 96" steel, and every type of valve in existence.
