6" PVC D2729 Thin Wall Duct Fitting Source - 1 reply

A lot of folks seem to have problems finding 6” thin wall PVC (D2729) duct fittings. I was picking up a 4” PVC D2729 (Thin wall DVW) wye this morning at my local Lowes store and I noticed that they are now carrying 6” D2729 fittings again. The prices seemed about par—i.e. ~$23 for a 6” wye.

When I click on Zoom, I get an enlarged pic, but there is no “Next” notation showing up to view the next pic. And I am not able to view enlarged copies of the other views. Has there been some software change? Thanks, Paul, in Auburn, WA
