So, apparently there is no such thing as a Stainless Steel 1/2" NPT x 1/2" Barbed Elbow fitting. I have been searching the internet for about 3 days now and cannot find one. Basically, I need this fitting;
...but with a 1/2" barb (instead of 3/8").
I purchased the Bargainfittings.com cooler bulkhead kit
with the optional female 1/2" hose barb for the inside fitting to connect to a false bottom. However, every false bottom I find has a 3/8" barbed elbow. I purchased the AIHB False Bottom
without the fittings assuming I could put one together with a 1/2" barb. No such luck.
Looks likes I should have gone with a standard 1/2" coupler, and attached a 3/8" barb instead. The only other option I can think of is to use a 1/2" 90deg. Street elbow, and attach a 1/2" straight barb for the false bottom connection.
Any suggestions? Thanks in advance!
