    PCV 3/4" nipples, unions, etc where to get in ottawa??

    Hi,

    I'm trying to build a closed loop system that doesnt require drillling and i'm having some serious trouble finding unions and nipples in the ottawa area, home depot doesnt seem to carry them !! there is a pvc place but it has some real bad hours (9-4:30) and no weekends so its fairly hard to get there so i was hoping someone else might know of a place that sells these very useful pvc pieces

    also anyone know where to get spa flex that you can purcahse by the foot? i'm making a LR pvc rack for some interesting arches and structures and need about 12 ' at the most... not 50'

    thanks!

    Hi,

    Try Boone Plumbing on Startop/Algoma(East End), Wosley Plumbing on Startop or Crane Supply on Startop. There is also Emco Supply that is on Coventry(accross from St-Laurent Shopping Center. :biglaugh2

    The 'best' site to get PVC plumbing supplies is likely Canus Plastics in downtown Ottawa. You can also get some of this material at Home Depot (in the electrical aisle). I've tried Boone Plumbing in the past and had no success.

    PVC plus. I forget where it is, but the name alone suggest they'll have most stuff in stock

    They're in the phone book.

    Cheers!
    There is nothing so permanent as a temporary measure.
