Finding PVC pipe fittings

I went to two LHS and they had quite a few of different PVC pipes and fittings but I couldn't find all the different fittings I needed in the correct sizes to make a reactor. What type of store should I go to that would have a larger selection of different PVC pipes, I looked online; although, the price would be too expensive.

Thanks
Michael

most hardware stores can order whatever you want. You should show them, in detail, what you are trying to build. I'm sure they'd be more than happy to help you.

If your local hardware doesn't have it you can also check out Lowes, or Home dept. Some will be in plumbing, some (hose barbs) might be in irrigation

The parts needed for my reactor should be found at almost any hardware store that is around and most any farm supply store. The only thing that might give you a problem is the hose barbs.

And if you need 5/8" hose barbs I have those if you need them. Or I have a complete, unassembled reactor here I would part with. It's actually the one in the pictures. I will even drill the hole for the CO2 line, thread it though and put a fitting on it so you can attach your line.
