Speciality Parts suppliers?
I have two projects in my head, but have not been able to find some of the parts.
First: I installed an inline heater and a Rex Reactor on my Fluval XP3. This involved replacing the factory hose with 5/8" id hose. No problems there, but because of the reduced flow rate, I now want to make a spray bar. I went to Home Depot yesterday, and the only 5/8" hose barb I could find was brass. I remember reading somewhere that brass is a no-no. Additionally there was no small diameter black pvc in the store.
Where can I find a nylon/plastic 5/8" hose barb? I am also looking for a 5/8" Y adapter (so I can run the reactor and heater in parallel)
Does anyone make 1/2" black pvc (all the stuff I found on the net was 2"+ sizes for sewer stuff).
Second: I in the planning stages for making a nano cube and want to add bulkheads, but the smallest sizes I could find were 1/2". Are there smaller sizes somewhere?
