    Do you guys know if any local hardware stores or fish stores carry metros size pvc parts? I need 32mm elbows and 40mm elbows.

  2. I ran in the same problem, I couldn't find metric pvc anywhere. If your in a rush you can use a piece of tubing to adapt from metric to standard. If not your best bet is to order it.

    Or dremel the size down. Since it's not pressure fittings you can sand it down a bit.

    The 32mm (1.2598") is super close to 1-1/4". 40mm (1.5748") is a bit further off from 1-1/2".

    I believe Ryan Herco in SJ? has metric; I'm on the same boat but in no rush to fix a Korallin reactor

    I use teflon tape to bridge the slight gap
