That is the exact truth. If you are going to bluff your way into a wholesale plumbing place (or electrical) you need two things: To walk in like you have a right to be there, and to know exactly what you want. The moment you lay a fitting on the counter & say "I need a fitting with threads that fit this", you are doomed! I've had cash accounts at two plumbing places & two electrical places for years and years before I was a licensed plumber. Even now I'm not sure why the electrical places put up with me..... I always take two boxes of popcorn. ;)

Plumbers education hour (minute): When you ask for a T type fitting you always ask the straight threw sizes first, then the elbow side last. A 3/4 by 1/2 by 3/4 Tee will be 3/4 on one end, 1/2 straight across from it, and a 3/4 elbow. Get it? Got it.

Sorry,it took a while to get back to this! A"Memorandum Of Understanding",as I remember it,is a Legal Agreement between parties pertaining to an Issue. Supposedly,according to the White House and The Weather Channel(Which is being finally blown out of the water by the Weather Nation Channel) that Frog's got rights,and needs to be comforted for as long as he and Smitty are together! Rest In Peace,JimD.,This Thread's For You ! :angel:
