    EA evo 30 watt UV

    hi all
    neighbour has a new evo 30 watt uv that im about to plumb in. the fish tails now screw into the front of UV as opposed to into the the side in the old models. connecting flexible pipe to the fishtails will mean that the corrugated pipe will have a tight bend back to the wall.
    being out this morning to local plumbing supplies along with diy stores and cant find a male/female 90 degree bend believe fish tail is one and half inch it would just make it look tidier and take out any kinks in the pipe work.
    any suggestions welcome.

    thanks

    forget my first post the fishtails point downwards . but can i turn the unit upside down so that the flexible pipe will have less bends in it.
    in fact only one steady curve.

    cheers Aj thats the way its going upside down will be far easier to fit and look a lot tidier.
    from shining a torch into pond bottom drain looks to have leaves around it . see if can clear them away tomorrow morning and hopefully get back to full flow.
    then see what we can do to get some air blowing through it.

    thanks again AJ
