Hunting for a tee

Greatings from 16 degrees above the equator. I was working in the Denver Co. area as of 2 1/2 years ago and had little problem finding fip tees for the projects I installed. Now that Im a little south of there I have to depend on the interweb to try to source fittings I cannot find on island. Im looking for a 3" through by 3/4" branch brass or S.S. tee for a project I have down here and am having no luck. Tried Plumbing Supply. Com as well as any others that would come up on google search. Am I missing something here. Do they no longer manufacture such things? Any input woud be very helpfull. Thanks Mars

    Ooh, that's a tough one. The only supplier I can think of that might have that fitting, or make up the bull to 3/4 is Mayer Malbin in Long Island City NY. Whenever I needed something I couldn't locate anywhere, they were the savior.
    Good luck.

    Midland Metals has a lot of brass and SS fittings. I see a 3X2, then bush or bell down to 3/4

    Maybe consider a Victaulic 422 SS mechanical tee? Wouldn't catch me threading 3" if at all avoidable

    Thanks for the help gentlemen, looks like if I want to use metal tee a bushing will be required.

    Give the FW Webb company a phone call. They probably have that item in stock.
    They are located in new england and can ship it to you.

    Is it for potable water? Really should be a low lead product.
