    quick connect parts

    Anyone know where to pick up parts for quick connects that most ro/di units use? I don't recall Home Depot carrying anything like this. Are these connectors normally used for food services? Ideally, i'm looking for this little part in the pic, but any extra elbows, or splitters would come in handy later on down the road.

    Thanks.
    George

    Orion is right,
    HomeDepot carries these. Check the aisle with the icemaker stuff.. It's usually there, they are in pink an white plastic baggies.

    Thanks guys. I'll take a closer look. Oddly enough, I don't recall seeing ro/di units at my lcoal HD even though the stores are pretty much identical 'cookie cutter' stores across N.America. I go to HD about once a week too. Talk about having no life... lol. TM, you even know the colour of the bags.. hmmmm... :P:

    In >my< HD, these are near the sprinkler systems. There are two rows, this is the "other row". The first row has copper and abs.

    Ya, these fittings seem great. I dont know how such a loose fitting with a small O-ring can withstand so much pressure. My brain is telling me to prepare for leaks even though everyone uses these fittings.

    I'll report back tomorrow to see how the stores in BC compare to the ones back East.

    You push and pull and it comes apart.
    Water pushes and it seals better.

    Go figure. ;-)

    Yup, found it. Thank TM and Cres for idenifying the whereabouts of this part almost right down the to barcode. I found it in the flexible hose section. I guess I've never looked up to see the small wall of connectors. lol. I still didn't see any ro/di units though. They've removed the HID ballasts/bulbs completely about 3 year ago, and now I see that there are no ro/di units either. Just how is one supposed to 'aqua culture' anything in BC these days? :wink5:
