nsf-pw pipe fittings are safe as long as you also use nsf-pw pipe.

i too have trouble getting any pvc over 2''. you can get it from mcmaster if you dont have a good hardware store.

For all of you in the USA. Lowes and HD are crappy for spud gun stuff.

Check out

John Deere Landscaping
Normac
Ferguson
Horizon.

These are all landscape and Plumbing supply stores..... they will have everything you have ever wanted, and can be less expensive than the warehouse stores! my recomendation is to befriend a employee at one of these places who might be interested in spud guns and get a prefer erred contractor discount... Its what i do!
