Question Where to buy WC connectors?

I'm looking for a store in the UK that sells 1/2" elbow/ Y and other water cooling connectors.

I'd also like some water tight fixings for a home made res' I'm working on.

I've tried B&Q and Focus but there useless for 1/2" stuff.

Any help is greatly appreciated

TIA,
E.

Welcome to the wonderful world of not being able to find the damn fittings!

I have the same problem, Ive fown B&Q do plastic Y's but the ones made for 1/2 have an ID of less than 3/8 so they arent all that useful. Ill keep an eye out and will post here if i find a good supplier.

Cheers mate

It amazing.... Just when you think everything is coming together I remember that I live in the UK and buying Computer stuff is a pain in the a$$.

Well, I'm off to Centre Parcs on Monday the 7th so I guess I wont be doing much more until I get back....

I'm new to this forum and have found it to be one of the best so far. I hope to be a regular if you'll have me

I'll second that Enigma, they're a friendly bunch.

BTW did you get your rad, and if so where from? My visit to the scrappy didn't come up with anything.

All the plumbing places I've been to have looked VERY confused at the mere mention of anything even "copper pipe" seems to confuse the hell out of them!

funny, but I just don't believe something like that can't be found in England, I found more then four places here in Slovenia where I can get fittings, even one that will custom made them for ~ 1 pound / piece for 1/2 OD brass fitting with 1/4" thread. And whole Slovenia is like 2mil. peoples
Try local search web engine, keywords pneumatic hidraulic, because those fittings are used mostly in those two fields.

And for precise decription of what are you looking for, check this place: http://www.mcmaster.com/ if you can't find fitting here than you will hardly find it anywhere else

dod - My radiator is on the way. I've managed to get a Polo rad from a friend who used to own one many years ago. He stripped the car down to sell of the parts and still had the rad left

Holst - Thanks for the links I'm going to try a plumbers merchants on Saturday, so fingers crossed I'll find something.

Morphling1 - Come over here and try and find some connectors mate, its like a black hole here. All the computer stuff seems to get sucked into another dimension
