    Most of us buy them at our local supply houses.

    I would hesitate to buy consumables on the web (other than on websites of known good suppliers) because of the risk of inadvertently purchasing low quality or counterfeit parts.

    I buy at my local Johnstone. I prefer to pump the money in my local economy. It goes both ways. Buying local helps the merchant, and in turn, it helps me because anytime I have a question or need advice or a hard to find part, they help me the best they can.

    You will probably only be able to find refrigeration fittings (long sweep) at a refer supplier. The water fittings are comparatively cheap and available all over. I use my wholesaler though.
    Tracers work both ways.
