does lowes have these items

Unread postAuthor: iisthemuffin » Wed May 28, 2008 7:25 pm

i live in ohio and my lowes is in middletown if thats of any help...i want to know if lowes sells 1 inch orbit sprinkler valves and 1 inch threaded nipples...male if that matters any...also i would like to know if they sell this adapter...im going to try my best to explain what it is but it may be vague...i need both ends of this adapter to be female...on one end i would like it to be 1 inch threaded and the other side i need 1/2 inch unthreaded...i would prefer to buy these from lowes or any other plumbing store rather than mcmaster...while be reliable i prefer actual stores rather than shipping

The 1" Sprinkler Valve = Maybe/Probably Not

The 1" Threaded Nipples = Without a doubt (Yes)

The Mystery Adapter = I know what you are talking about but they don't make those in just one solid piece. You would have to make it from a combination of different fittings. I presume the 1/2" un-threaded side would be for soldering copper pipe onto?

You should be able to check if a certain store has the items in stock if you use their website, I believe.

well, if you are talking about pvc, you would have to buy a couple separate fittings/parts to make the adapter. Let me help you out.

I drew you a diagram to help explain
Image
(black)*1" threaded steel pipe (shortest you can get, which will probably be 2" long)
(blue)*1" coupler with 1" internal threads
(red)*Small section of 1" pvc pipe
(green)*1"-1/2" coupler
(pink)*Whatever length of 1/2" pipe you plan to use

I went to buy a sprinkeler valve from a lowes but they didnt keep it in inventory, so i had to order it. but one nice thing is that if you have to "make" your own adapter out of seperate peices you can just find and fit them together.

ohio...but i have decided to buy the already modded valve from bcarms.com seeing as how it is cheape...unless someone will sell me a cheap sprinkler valve...if your looking to get rid of one and dont have a cannon to build i will take it...if you just want to give it away i will pay shipping or pay you however much you would like for it

thank you for your help sthorne...i couldnt really visualize it in my head...i had just planned to go to lowes and build it in the store but that helps alot...thank you
