    Ok well im looking at building my own liquid deicer i've thought everything out well most of it....
    I already have one rig so im pretty much just going to copy it!
    I am starting off with a 300 gallon tank it has a 3" outlet where can i find all the fittings i need to reduce it to a smaller hose i've checked home depot and they have like nothing.. i dont mind going online to get them its just i went to graingers site and maybe someone can explain to me why this ONE little fitting is $115

    Anyone know a site where i can get cheap or even after market fittings?

    Fleet farm is good for rubber hose, not sure if you have one near you. I buy almost all my fittings and specialty stuff from dultmeier.com , some stuff from northern tool......I NEVER use stainless or brass

    Central Equipment in NY 800 706 5060, they sell Banjo brand fittings and valves, hoses of all kinds. We were looking for hose for our application truck, we needed 2 300 ft lengths, JD landscapes wanted about $400 each, we got em for like $125 from Central. SAME exact hose, same manufacturer.

    In my expierience if you need items from Central go to their website or look up manufacturers numbers, then call Jackie and ask her for priceing. They provide very good customer service and if they don't have items in stock they'll order and direct ship to you, if they do not handle a certain item they are pretty good about refering you to a source who does. I really don't deal with anyone else.
