PVC connector

Hello, I'm currently working on the construction of water bridge with 4" OD acrylic tube. Hard part is finding the 90 degree adapter with 4" ID. All the PVC adapters are larger to fit the thick wall of other PVC pipes. Anybody has a suggestion on what type of connectors I can use for this purpose.

You probably won't find a good matchup of PVC/acrylic and need to have it custom made from an acrylic shop.

Hmm I got one 45 degree PVC connector one side is 4" ID and other is regular size. It is called street elbow. It is little tight to fit, may be I need to heat it and insert, let me try that. Thanks for your response.
