PVC screw on fitting with o-ring

Hello,

Does anyone know where I can get a fitting like this? For an irrigation pump drawing water from a lake. Currently, I just shove the pvc pipe onto the fitting and clamp it. Itís a pain to shove on and pull off at the start/end of season.

Which fitting in the photo are you looking for? The one fitting totally visible is a 90 degree elbow union, possibly with a barbed end.

Yes, the 90 degree elbow with a barbed end and a threaded male end (with o-ring seal) and the partner female end with a threaded nut.

I guess it’s called a pvc union Coupler. I’d prefer if both ends were barbed.

I’m looking for an easy connector to hook up the lake intake hose to the pump.

Wrestling with a 20 ft hose and mating it to the steel barbed connector on the pump is a pain.

A screw on type of connector would appear much easier.

If you want something easier to attach and unhook each season I would look at camlock fittings. They are often used in industry and agriculture when large hoses need to be easily hooked up and disconnected.
