    2" to 3/4"

    I have 2 inch plumbing. Everywhere. I am installing 4x pentair deck jets II that each have a 3/4 inch pipe fitting. My plan is to build a 2 inch plumbing loop with 4x "T"s coming off of it. Each of the Ts will be followed by a 3/4 inch valve to control flow to each jet.

    Problem. I can't seem to find Ts that reduce 2 inches into 3/4 inch. I know I can buy reducers, but I'd have to buy lots of them, ie 2 inch to 1.5 inch to 1 inch to 3/4 inch. Times 4!!!

    Am I thinking about this correctly? Is there an easier way to build this?

    Thanks for the advice.

    Where are you trying to find the fittings?

    Plumbing specialty stores will have a better selection closer to what you need.

    There are Tees that the side leg is a smaller diameter. This one is even threaded, so you just screw in a reducer bushing and go.

    1.5 inch T's with 3/4 stubs are common, so you might consider doing a stub reduced to 1.5 inch with a series of 1.5 inch / 3/4 inch T's

    I had no problem getting a 2" to 3/4" threaded reducer at Lowe's or home depot. One part, less than a buck. Glue right into the tee fitting.

    Re: 2" to 3/4"

    My Rona (kinda Home Depot) and Home Depot do not carry these... Nor do any of my pool stores. I feel like a freak when I ask. They look at me and say "what the **** you tryin' to do?" Like I am from Mars or something. I feel like I'm the only one in my area to ever put in some deck jets! If anyone finds a US site that offers these PVC fittings, or has a better idea on how to proceed with this idea of mine, please post link!

    Thanks.

    I have found there are something's that Lowes carry that HD doesn't. I find I need to go to Lowes when I can't find it at HD. I had this same issue with a specific type of irrigation pipe.

    My local Lowes stocks these for less than $2 each (2x2x3/4). The 3/4 part comes in threaded or slip. They also carry a 2" to 3/4" bushing, threaded or slip. http://www.lowes.com/pd_317748-1815-401 ... facetInfo=
