I saw that they where online at all the big three. I went to all three yesterday and none where there. Had a man at Home Depot took me all over the store looking for them. For a good 15 minutes, never had this good of service before. He said when I asked at first "I don't think we have them."
They didn't have them. We went to ever department that had pipe stuff in it. Also lawn and garden.
I'll get one was hoping not to buy online.
Thanks for all your replies, I'M going to more walley and lowes 2day.

I promise I might not said right what I was looking for but I know what it is. In Lowes and depot the have a 45 but no 90.
Thanks every one I did only go to 1 of the walmarts in town, but I"m not going to the other four in are area.. Please don't make me....

Bought mine at Wal-Mart. It was in the back by automotive by the RV section. If they have it will depend on where you are. I live in Granbury. Plenty of RV activity in my area. Same with boating. Hence they have a large section for both.

Yep, best get one quick, althoug on my newest fifth wheel it does not work as well as it comes too close to the side of the trailer, so my city hook up must be in deeper than my previous two units.
But I would never have one set up like the OP.

Stop that Scout - I don't like simple solutions

Once you have the proper name and description so you can 'splain it to them,
Call ahead and save the driving... OR just order it online... probably cheaper than driving around for an hour


I may get the two 45's too as my 90 keeps working loose and leaking under pressure...

Here's a better one from Lowes. Look in the area where they sell washer hoses. If they don't have it in stock at your local Lowes, have the customer service desk order you one.
Shop Watts Braided Rough Brass Washing Machine Connector at Lowes.com

The brass ones leak, 2 brass ones will leak twice as much even with new o rings.

The braided nylone hose with the spring around it has very poor fittings, tin not die cast. I pitched both of mine.

Online Ordering go to bottom of list, pipes & fittings

Find what you need here and I will mail some to you if you can't locate them in the US. I can mail them to you or to Herrin welding in Kilgore where my truck is having a deck made.
Will ship by mail not UPS, they are bandits.

Sometimes it is better to find it online and have it mailed, cheaper on fuel.
Let me know if you want me to go ahead, my contract with the victoria Target store at Tillicum will finish this week and I will be moving on.

Baloney! That may be true for a ham-fisted DIY plumber, but not for anybody with any experience in successfully connecting water hoses. The brass ell on my 5er has been serving faithfully for 12 years, and has never leaked a drop. The first 10 years the 5er was used as an RV and so the water hose was connected and disconnected numerous times. The last two years it has been used as a residence in a trailer park, so it stays connected now. Leak-free connection requires a clean fitting and a perfect hose gasket or O-ring, maybe coat the gasket or O-ring with Vaseline, then get it good and tight - maybe the girls with weak wrists would need to use "water pump" plyers or maybe a small Stilson wrench. But everyone always carries proper tools with them when on the road, right?

Well I did find where they where at a walley world, but sold out. I figured to 45's would still stick out to far.
Me being the op, someone said they wouldn't have a set up like mine. Why do you think I asked the question? Maybe because I didn't like my set up!
Wow could be...
Forum + Info = knowledge for newbies or inquiring minds!

I actually wish I hadn't asked it to be truthful.

The brass ones leak.. Well.. I will describe two situtations

1: old washer.. Hose washers, do wear out they get hard and inflexible and when this happens they leak, don't matter if the fitting is brass or plastic or whatever, they leak.

Solution: New washer

2: El-cheapo connectors are made out of brass foil for all purposes and intents, they too tend to leak.

The good quality brass ones I have,, DO NOT LEAK.

Mine was a cheap one, poor fittings both ends, tried new 0 rings, even stacked up 2 but they wouldn't connect properly.

I will be going back to Calgary in the next couple of weeks. There may be one in the yard, I used one to connect 2 soaker hoses. If it hasn't been pitched I will mail it to anyone so they can test it. If I'm wrong I will stand corrected until then I'm sticking to my guns.

To the OP, I will go to Van Isle Water Services and make one with the 90 and braided hose and appropriate fittings no charge and mail it to you if you like. Maybe 2 or 3 as I need one as well. Instead of hose clamps I will see if there are compression fittings.

If you do get one down there let us know if it leaks or not.

I looked at the pic but didn't see anything other than price.

When I pick up the truck you owe me lunch at the retro burger joint in Kilgore
