    I have a 1"check valve on my tank tee, the Plastic Elbow thet screws into it and then slides into the 1-1/4" plastic tubing/pipe from my well. It appears this elbow has a very slight leak so I was thinking when I reseal the threads, maybe I should put a brass one in-I also could use an extra 1"-2" anyways for better alignment. any links to what I'm after? TIA!

    Just looks like a 1" insert elbow. Maybe called a 1" barb to thread elbow.
