    Looking for a PVC straight thread fitting

    I'm looking for a 2" adapter fitting with straight thread, as opposed to the tapered pipe thread....I think the threaded winterizing plugs have straight threads, but I need something like this: Shop LASCO 2-in Dia PVC Sch 40 Adapter at Lowes.com except straight thread...I tried searching Hayward products, but I don't see anything. I think if it exists, it's a pool part.

    Electrical conduit is usually straight thread. I use them to DIY bulkhead fittings.

    Thanks...I heard that somewhere else and bought an electrical conduit fitting, but it turned out it was tapered as well...I checked it with micrometers and a straight edge. I'll have to see if there's another one available elsewhere.

    In my area, Home Depot usually has the straight thread. Lowes switched to both being tapered.

    That's helpful- thanks. I bought my part at Lowe's, so I'm going to check HD now.
