    All the dealers will have fittings, depends how much you want to pay for em lol.
    Coastal are decent as are Kitsu Koi.
    Shop around as delivery charges are usually the thing that can put the price up.
    Also check eBay and on here as people always have stuff left over, I have a box full of stuff I should get rid of at some point.
    Anything in particular youre after?

    Thanks BCC Seen most dealers have a selection but what I find is the knowhere seems to have everything meaning I need to pay multiple postage and koi tax.

    I was not sure if there was a supplier out there that stocks a wide variety.

    In particular its the bsp items I mentioned.

    I will take a look at Kitsu Pipework

    Thanks Pipework

    JBR does not have a retail website /online shop.

    Just says it has pressure pipe fittings.

    I have found a site I am just looking at


    https://www.plasticpipeshop.co.uk/PV...ngs_c_492.html

    Seems they have a lot of choice

    Pipework

    Jason at JBR can get everything at a good price but their delivery charges can be a bit steep imo.
    You could try Pipestock or similar online, just have a google.

    The dealers would have most popular stuff but probably cant keep everything under the sun.

    If you happen to need the odd bit then world of water if you have one near you are alright. My local one has always a good choice of bits and not silly money.

    Coastal koi are deffo decent for big valves.
    FWIW, the smaller EA valve handles have a habit of falling off, Im not a fan.
    The CK ones are better oddly enough.

    I use the big online pipe suppliers for lengths of pipe, simply because they can offer long uncut lengths at a good price.
    However, I think you will find that the pressure pipe elbows and valves they sell are actually more expensive than Coastal Koi, who offer free P&P.
    So I always do a twin order myself.

    I've used a local supplier before that tend to have reasonable prices.
    Spa plastics Coventry.
    Plus I can just nip out and collect them.
    They don't have an online shop but If I'm buying a fair bit I'll get a quote as they don't always have everything in stock.
    Usually odd size adaptors.
    You don't have to be a pipefitter to keep koi...
    but it helps...

    Im currently installing a pool and then doing the koi pond shortly after. I purchased all my 1.5 pool plumbing from 1stdirectforpools.com . Its white rather than grey, but in my experience from having a pool before no different? Fittings there are about 50% cheaper than CK by the looks of things and they will ship pipe too.
