    Does anybody know:
    An alternative supplier of VDL PVC fittings other than watford aquarium?

    If any other brands are compatible with VDL?

    Or does anybody has the following fittings spare from a project:
    40mm Tee 40mm 90 deg elbow, 2 x 40mm caps
    I need these to finish my durso standpipes

    Cheers Stevie
    I have tried a number of searches and have never found their site.
    Will try them in the morning.
    I have just tried to email and got this message back

    "Mail verstuurd"

    My Dutch is as good as my swahili so I have no idea whether my mail was sent or not.

    Any one else any alternatives?

    Calico in penrith have 40mm vdl in stock most of the time. picked up the bits for my durso there.

    Why do you need 2x end cap ( unless one is for spare incase you overdrill the hole) 3mm works but clogs quickly, if you can be bothered silicone in some airline and put a tap on the end.


    Roddy

    EDIT almost forgot, don't glue the end cap just ptfe it inplace as you remove it quite often for cleaning. this depends on the length of your uptube. i kept mine short so you don't see it (hence the regular cleans)

    2 end caps needed because there are 2 standpipes (twin 40mm overflows)

    I have rung Danny and he has none on the van either. Do you know if the RS ones are compatible with VDL?
