Anyone know of any local store/spa outlet that sells flexible PVC
in the twin cities?

Many Thanks,

I think you should be using hose barbs and hose clamps for the flexible PVC.

Yep, Menards. HD sells it but it was overpriced there IIRC.

I believe both Menards and Lowe's sells it buy the foot. I also bought the flex glue at Menards but I have heard of people using the standard PVC glue with no problems, but with the flex glue available I thought why take a chance.

Thanks everyone, I will make a run to both HomeDepot and Menards and see what happens. Need to redo my plumbing, too much salt creep.

Many Thanks,

Beng

flex pvc is designed to be glued . it just needs glue that has a small amount of flex to it, the normal stuff is to hard when it dries. The hose barbs will work but in the long run they have a chance at leaking , might as well do it right the first time.
