I'm struggling to find a connector for my solar panel hot water cylinder secondary indirect coil.
The coil has a 22mm male connector sticking through the insulation.
Ideally I would like a 22mm elbow female connector that connects to the cylinder and at the other end a 22mm connector that allows me to connect a 22mm pipe. Compression or pushfit rather than solder would suit me better.
The only ones I can find on the internet are 22mm x Imperial. E.g. 22mm x 1inch.

There is no such thing as a 22mm thread. Either the tank has an imperial thread or as in cases such as Gledhill cylinders then the fitting is actually a 22mm compression fitting that fits directly to copper pipe.

Thanks for the help.
Yes, the Gledhill cylinder has a compression fitting as standard. It should come supplied with the nut and olive. Maybe they have become lost??
With a nut and olive you should be able to connect the pipe directly to the tank flange.
