Good day peeps,

Got a quick question on pvc hose barbs. I'm currently running 5/8 outlet hose on my fb setup. I've been using poly barbs for the last few years but they break and leak very often, so I want to switch them out to pvc. Problem is I can't find a 1/2 x 5/8 pvc barb, so I'm wondering if I should just use 1/2 x 1/2 pvc barb and get them crimped on, or can anyone suggest where I might be able to get a 5/8 pvc barb

I have every size imaginable in sch 80 pvc hose barbs in stock and ready to ship via UPS OR USPS Priority or whatever you need!

We have jump sizes in just about every configuration.  Poly fittings are too soft and the fiberglass mixed in ends up being the failing component.  Get rid of the extra camlocks while you're at it!

I saw someone using brass barbed fittings. That would certainly resolve the issue of breaking. Yes they do corrode but would they be problematic?

Actually, BRONZE has equal or better SH resistance as stainless steel, and Hastelloy  is the best metal.
