    Hi All,

    I am looking for a T-Piece and ball valve for those hard plastic 5mm pipes that you get. They mainly come with RO units.

    Water won't be under pressure, so doesn't need to be a very tight fit as such. I've just never seen these things anywhere.

    Anywhere in CPT that would be a good place to start looking?

    No clue what they called, but what @dallasg said yes. The RO connectors, the ones I already have screws over the pipe...

    Andre,

    Just want to check if I can come right somewhere a little bit closer to home. If I don't, I will let you know and more than likely make the trip to Muizenberg over the weekend.

    Super, walk into a mall - try the place that sells water purification systems, they are bound to have. If not you must tell me to get - If you just pop in I wont have.

    Sure one of the sponsors can help, try reef aquatics, alternative Liaquat has and saw some at Billy.
    Also saw some nice ones, a bit pricy for the carbon at Builders wharehouse.
