2 inch elbows

Unread postAuthor: the_beaver689 » Fri Jul 13, 2007 4:02 pm

I have been looking at all the hardware stores and I can not find a 2 inch pvc threaded street elbow. I have found them on mcmaster but they are 10 bucks, same with launchpotatoes.com. Anyone know of a store and or site that sells these for reasonable a price?

I solvent weld everything, because threading it reduces the pressure rating quite a bit.

Solvent weld a male adapter to it, unless you are going for the somewhat compact feeling.
