    Either FAB Water Engineering in Randburg or Astore on the East Rand, depending which side of town you stay. Astore has the better variety, but FAB is fine for pretty much all the fittings we need for aquariums.

    Fab was okay. Find their valves hard, and was looking for red pvc piping, not sure if it's available anywhere ?

    You wont find fancy coloured PVC in this country easily. Only white and black is easy to come by and affordable. Grey is harder to get and very expensive.

    Not sure if he still has. But he had 25mm and 40mm. Google Emperor Aquatics.
