Hi all,

does anybody know where one could buy this locally? preferabbly on the east rand or online.

it is a 3 way pvc joint, doesnt have a common use so i cannot get them at builders etc.



TIA

Guys this is not a regular part, it fits no practical PVC piping job at a home, it is a 3 way joint with all three perpendicular to each other

holy fffffffff, typical south african company milking consumers. this part should sell for like R10
With delivery of 10-20 days it's obviously being imported.

pvc fittings south africa brings up many companies that manufacture and resell various things.

Email em maybe, quick look around the sites though seems the closest you will get is t pieces.

This is not a standard plumbing fitting..

I looked for these a while ago and just gave up at the end of the day....

Curious, what did you have in mind for using them?
I was wanting to make up a few pvc framed cat stands... found all the places importing them at ridiculous costs, and since it was just a little sideline thing i was going to make it wasn't worth it.

What will it cost to print something like that using a 3D-printing service?

Have just been to Builders' Express here in PE and they had plenty. In two different sizes and in white, red or black...

PS. it was in the irrigation items' aisle, not plumbing.

Intriguing..

When I looked, it was only the smaller stuff, like half inch that they had... not the larger type.
