Try to get as much as possible at Home Depot or Lowe's. You can find gate valves and some other specialty parts at OSH and ACE. For any other parts you can order online or try McFadden-Dale's hardware

i agree with Jendubb

any of the hardware supply stores have a lot of parts for cheap...although the flexible PVC is a little hard to come by

Spa Flex can be found at any HD or Lowes...just have to know where to look.

Its worth using it in small sections to take up a little vibration but not really any better the hard PVC. I'm sure some people think it might be better.
