    plumbing help needed.

    I will be plumbing a MAG 12 which is 3/4" does anyone have any flex PVC also known as SPAFLEX lying around.
    also, what are better valves for adjusting flow.
    gate or ball valve?

    Re: plumbing help needed.

    gate valves are the best, but way too big/bulky and expensive. You typically see those on skimmers (I have a 2" one on mine) as it allows for easiest adjustment.

    A ball valve will suffice - home depot or rona for the cheap ones under 10$. I've got a number of them on the system too - some from Canus (before Rona/Home Depot were around) and a bunch from Rona/HD...

    I don't have any flex PVC though, sorry. I just snagged what Marinescape had left, as I didn't want to buy a 50' roll at PVC Plus.

    Ciao!
