Return help

Anyone know how I can connect this 1/2 flexible ball socket to a 1/2 PVC pipe? I thought a 1/2 elbow would work but I was wrong.

Any ideas where I can find the piece I need for this?

I checked out there website. Im just not sure what I am looking for.

It's for my return. I have 1/2 PVC pipe that I need to connect to the 1/2 loc line. A 1/2 elbow did not fit the loc line.

What am I missing here?

There is a piece of 1/2 loc line with threads on one side. You probably need that and a 1/2 elbow from home depot that has threads on one end and a slip on the other. A pic of all the parts you have would help.

No problem, when you go to home depot make sure you buy the elbow that is threaded on 1 side and thread seal tape to prevent leaks
