Default Nipples for UDS

I went to homedepot to get everything to do the build and all they had were tapered nipples (hahahaha, im immature and that sounds funny :D). Do you guys use these? Or where do you get ones that aren't?

As far as I know, that is all you will find in the plumbing dept. I may be wrong though. Looking forward to other's input.

That is what i used, worked fine. I used conduit nuts on each side of the nipple. The taper helped get a nice tight fit.

I knew all the ones in the plumbing section would be tapered. Just didn't know if people got ones that were intended for a different use. I didn't think the donduit nut would be able to go over the wider end of the taper.

What length are you guy using?

You can go to a HVAC contractor and have them cut threads on a some sections of 1" pipe for you.
