Ink,

Much of the 1" and smaller stuff can be found at the box hardware stores....

For anything other than a basic elbow I had to go online...

Is cheaper and forces you to plan better.....

I and others have used the link you provide...is where I got my cone distributors....

If you have a Lowes & Home Depot both nearby, check them both. For some of my fancier PVC work I find I need pieces from both places that the other doesn't carry.

Besides that, see if you have a real plumbing supply warehouse in your area. They tend to not be the most user friendly places 'cause they're geared towards professional business only, but the one near me has the most comprehensive selection. You'll probably have to look them up in the yellow pages though. It won't be next to a Walmart, it's gonna be buried in the back-lot of some industrial office complex in the blue-collar section of town.

I tried pool,spa and plumbing supply warehouse around my location with no luck. Normal size is 1.5 and up in Lowes and Home Depot. I guess on line is the only way. So Gerryd how good is this company?

Ink,

I ordered from them TWICE so it can't have been that bad...

It was fine. Stuff was delivered fine and in a timely manner. Web site was a pain to always go from the cart back to where you were IMO.
