Eheim Tubing Elbow Alternative

Does anyone know of an alternative to this eheim elbow?



I have been searching all over Home Depot and Lowes website with no luck on locating an alternative to it. I want to be able to make my 2215 tubing turn 90 degrees.

You can heat it and bend it more or buy clear Pvc 90 adapters from eBay. If you need a different length tube, buy rigid tubing, cut to length, heat, and bend

Amazon and Kensfish has Lee's rigid tubing as well as some LFS. EBay and usplastic are online sources for clear Pvc adapters. They are avail in 45 & 90° bends

You can use a pvc 90 with slip x thread reducers and then thread to barbs.
