Need a source for galv. culvert pipe fittings.
[Return to Topics]

We need a 12" tee, a 12" to 8" reducer, and a 8" to 6" reducer. The 12" tee is the only fitting that is a 'must have'. The other reducers can be varied.

We're trying to figure out a discharge pipe for our pond that will direct some of the outflow to
a ram and maybe in the distant future a small turbine.

From the 6" reducer downward I'll try to use Schedule 40 PVC.

Any ideas?

Thanks, yet again...

Bob oh is right. no 1 gal fittings are out of sight pricewise new. I have bought some at county maintance shed but don,t like to part with them. Plastic you can get most any farm store and unless you are going over with big trucks will hold up and last a long time. bob ia

Forget the galv. and use the double wall plastic field tile type tubing,so much easier to work with

Can the plastic fittings mate up with the galv. pipe? The 12" galv pipe is on hand. The dam gets traffic over it. Tractors mostly.

i know of no adaptor that will be a tight fit what i did in my driveway was had plastic bigger than steel and put plastic over it and cemented on top side bottom was tight by raising it up been in over 20 years and hasn,t washed out or broke apart Have tractor and truck over it but no high speed Might pay to think about on first con and then you can use plastic on rest proper

Call up the local lumber yard. The one in Sapulpa carries every sort of tin horn and collar. Them new plastic tin whistles are at least as good and lots easier to work with tho.
