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.
Better than box stores By RyanS on 8/27/2017RyanS would recommend this product to a friendNotably better quality than schedule 80 I found at the box stores, fit, smoothness, general look, sizing, etc. I know it cost a little more but was worth it.
Can't compare schedule 40 to 80, they are rated differently on pressure/durability.

Premium fitting By Ken on 5/3/2016Ken would recommend this product to a friendLooks good especially with colored SCH 40 tubing. But the finish is no better than the white SCH 40 fittings at the big box stores for a fourth of the price. I will think hard about what I will do for my next build.
A Great SCH 80 TEE By Brandon on 1/30/2014Brandon would recommend this product to a friendPerfect Tee with Slip X Slip X Slip. Works perfect with Sch 80 piping. Useful for all projects needing a tee.
Schedule 80 is the best way to go. By Melvin on 6/9/2011Melvin would recommend this product to a friendSchedule 80 is the best way to go. Just make sure you have enough room when laying out your set-up because it does take a little more space. That being said the strength of the fittings you just can not beat.

Unfortunately it is not possible to run a reactor in line with a canister filter. The impeller within the canister is not designed for the flow to work well as well as fitting and plumbing up between the Polyethylene semi malleable tubing and soft canister filter tubing will prove to be a very tough challenge. Feel free to let us know if you have any further questions!
