Default Plumbing Q?

Starting to think about plumbing my tank

Wondering where you guys get good quality pvc, and connections?

Or does Home Depot do the job?

Depends how fancy you want to go. Your local plumbing supplier will have all the sched 40 stuff. Sched 80 is WAY overkill for our hobby, but looks cool. If you want coloured pipe and fittings, then you'll have to go with BRS or Formufit out of the States.

For basic common stuff Home Depot works fine and it is really convenient especially if you know what you want. Parts are there right in front of you you can play with them for as long as you want.

You do not to go to a counter and order a part from a catalog hoping to get the right part.

Home depot has a very limited selection at a lot of their stores, I only ever try to find something there if it's an emergency or they are the only place that is close by. I would reccomend finding a swimming pool or plumbing supply store.

I have found home depot has a good selection of schedule 40 fittings for 1/2" through to 1" for common things, elbows, tees, ball union valves, couplers and unions. If you need other parts or different sizes you have to go elsewhere.
They tend to have the best selection in the spring. Prices are reasonable.

I called a few specialty shops in Edmonton area and they were saying you need a bigger order just to process a request.

Going to check Home Depot on days off but I donít think they have the grey fittings I am looking for.

Any reason your opposed to reg white schedule 40 PVC??? It’s super cheap and 1” is rated to like 250-275 PSI
If you want a specific code lot why not just install it, tape it off and paint it.

No Home Depot only carries white pvc schedule 40 fittings. You will likely have to order them online.

Go to Corix. 1210 70 Ave NW, Edmonton, AB T6P 1P5

Tell them you are a salt water aquarium geek and they'll help you out. They carry all sched 80 (grey) product except barb fittings. They have Spears valves too. They will sell you 1 or 100.
