with all respect, not all are rated PN 18... i was down at three separate hardware/plumbing stores and they were all PN 12

I concur, i've seen PN12, PN15 and PN18 while in 'holidaying' in Australia.

have you tried Reece or trade link? that where i get all my odd bod fittings (Reece was the only place that had a 15mm to 6mm reducing bush and i noticed they looked like they had some pressure pipe although I'm not sure what the rating is on it)

*slightly off topic... i also saw a guy next to me at Reece being helped out and he had a sprinkler valve and PVC pressure fittings (a T and 2 elbows and end caps) and how he was laying them out on the bench I'm sure he was building a spud gun lol.. anyone in Reece in sunbury today getting parts?
