Looking for fittings need help


I need 2 3/4 inch 90 degree brass elbos. They need to be threaded on one end and copper sweat on the other.

This guy on eBay sells in 10 units. If you search for ebay item 370513850775, you will see exactly what I am looking for.

Thanks for any help. Home Dumpo only had them in 1/2 inch.

google 3/4 mip x copper 90, I found some that way. Or you could try a local plumbing supply house.
Could you use a copper mip with a copper street 90 attached to it?

Probably, but I have limited space for the new Kohler Valve and was wanting to limit fittings and joints, reduce chance for leaks!

Thanks, but thats not what I am looking for. Looks like I can get them at Grainger for a fair price.

Why do they need to be brass.
Any box story or local plumbing supply will have copper fittings like that.

They don't. I just thought brass into brass would be a better long term fit. Plus I never saw a 3/4 threaded 90 copper one end and solder other end.

You could take your valve back and exchange it for one that has sweat connections rather then iron pipe. That way you'd eliminate any threaded joints and could use st 90's on the valve.
