Where can one purchase VDL brand PVC fittings, unions, and couplers?

I am specifically looking for parts numbers 08.20.020 and 08.22.020.

Many thanks...I live in the USA and I need to repair some European equipment, but, of course, metric PVC parts are nearly impossible to find here stateside, and what is available is not this specific brand. I don' mind having them shipped from Europe.

Thanks!

Not quite what I was looking for. I have a Deltec APF600, for which the aquabee f2000/1 has gone out. It's under warranty, but, Deltec USA is positively horrible on the customer service side. It's impossible to get a replacement pump from them with warranty, as they always blame your pump problem on "improper cleaning," and, then proceed to tell you that if you want another pump, it will cost $300 US Dollars. SO, I am trying to retrofit a Tunze hydrofoamer to this skimmer, but, I need the union nuts, VDL part # 8.20.20, and collar number 8.25.021.

Thanks!

Anyone else know of an online source to buy this manufacturer's pipe fittings? There's one distributor in the US, but, they do not have a website for purchasing products, and I don't have time during the day to make a phone call and ask them. Is there a "Home Depot" type store in the UK?

I would not hold your breath if I were you. I have contacted this company a few times via there contact details on the site, but have never had a response. As above, try Bob. He has loads of the not so common bits too

Try Watford aquarium, they certainly used to be a stockist.
