The golden rule of plumbing is that every job takes three trips to the store. While this can be frustrating locally it can be much worse when shopping online. Being short a fitting or two can delay a plumbing project for days. Here are some quick tips to avoid this.
- Plan your plumbing on paper
- Don't skimp on unions. Unions allow for easy breakdown and maintenance as well as remove the need for precise elbow placement. Use them as often as possible.
- When in doubt order extra. We happily accept returns for a full refund (less shipping) on all unused fittings within one month of purchase. A few extra bucks in return shipping is less frustrating than a project delay.
Only place in the world I can find these! By Nicole on 11/12/2015Nicole would recommend this product to a friendI have been looking for these types of joints for over 6 months! I just found them here. While it was used for a double decker kitty hammock and not fish, this is where I recommend other people in need of odd joints and connections.
I will note a negative is that the 3/4" seemed to be a little off on some of the joints. Some were easy to insert PVC and others I was jamming on and thinking about using a mallet to get them on because the diameters of the joints varied a little. I would like to see a little more consistency with the diameters of the joints. I have already tested the joints with different PVC's and found that no matter what PVC was used it was hard to get PVC to slide easily on only in certain joints while other slipped on with no problem.
I would like to rate this as a 4.5 but they don't have that choice here.

Great question. The Schedule 40 fitting on our site are indeed furniture grade however still rated schedule 40 for pressure and intensity. The furniture grade fittings will not be labeled and not include the ratings written on the side. We have used these fittings on all of our systems without issue. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
