Im having trouble finding the right fitting to make a repair in a tight place on an upstairs bathroom. Im looking for a 1/2" male NPT swivel 90* fitting (both sides male- one side can be 3/8". Basically hooking up a tub faucet and I have about 1.5" in any direction besides down.
This is the swivel Im talking about, but the female side I need to be 1/2" and the Pex side can be 1/2 or 3/8" male.

I know it can be done because summit has race fittings similar to what I need.....

Edit: I need 1/2" NPT male on each side preferred.

Okay I'm confused does one side need to be 1/2 female and 1/2 one male or Pex, 90* or straight?

I'm no plumber, but, when I wind up in a jam and ask for some retarded oddball thing it's usually because I'm doing it wrong.

You're probably doing it wrong.

Oh- I realize that. I either create a kinda hokie fix that still works perfectly fine using this fitting, or I pull a bunch of shit out and completely redo the setup- likely needing tile repair, etc...

What Im currently looking at is not an ideal repair, but it should be perfectly fine long term if I can get the correct fitting. The original install had soldered 90* plumbing fittings, but that was only possible before the tile was all laid down.

Cant you just stick a close nipple in the fitting you have pictured :confused:


Edit: or use a 1/2" street 90 with a close nipple on the female side..

Exactly what I did about 3 weeks ago looking for something similar. Worked perfect, but I still am a little raw that the fucking bar code sticker wouldn't peel off clean:mad3:

Total cost was like $0.85.
