    Take it Plumb Center or similar, they should be able to find something to fit it.

    Bart, maybe you shouldn't worry about a new valve as I believe these are normally left open anyway.......;)

    If you can find a 1 inch gatevalve in a pound shop, you go for it. My local pond and aquarium specialist shop stock all manner of large bore water pipes cheap, but nowhere near a quid each. About quarter the cost of going to a motorhome spares company because its not being sold for a leisure vehicle

    Sorry; I was being flippant. I realised you meant a shop that sells pond perquisites. I'll close the door on the way out.....

    Another problem I encountered was that the 32mm bore went down quite a lot to about 18/20mm which is useless. Another place to try is a swimming pool installers/supplier. The pipe work in the plant rooms is quite large bore.

    I notice you have a Bessacarr.

    Is This what you need? Remove the straight plastic piece and screw the valve onto your pipe?
