Possible rare pipe supplier

Unread postAuthor: Pilgrimman » Thu Dec 27, 2007 7:50 pm

This is for PVC, haven't checked out ABS...
EDIT: Pressure rated ABS is on there, but it's more expensive...
Also, found 5" pipe! :shock: Also, there is the hallowed 3/4" sch 120 PAINTBALL PIPE!
There's even clear pipe! EDIT # 2: Just saw SDR 26 2.5" pipe. I think the wiki says that's the only diameter that fits tennis balls well! Wow, I really hope the minimum order quantity isn't massive...

Even if it was, someone could pool our money, buy the pipe, and distribute it to it's respective buyers... That's probably more appropriate for classifieds, though...

Look for more edits!

The only kink might be the minimum order quantity, as I don't feel like calling to find out what it is! :D

Here's the link:

EDIT # 3: Hee hee, check this out! http://webcat.ryanherco.com/products/115/130/110/115130110.cfm

At my lemonade stand I used to give the first glass away free and charge five dollars for the second glass. The refill contained the antidote

Well 5' of 2.5" can be shipped for $12USD based of BC Arms shipping calculator.

So you may end up saving money, but then again I would think they would have a ridiculous minimum order, probably in the hundreds of feet.

I just emailed them about minimum order sizes, If my Pnue does well (still tuning it up a bit), then I could use that golf ball barrel.

@ cwazy
I can get 20" (EDIT: 20 FEET not inches, thanks dewey!) for 7 $. I feel for Crowley, though. I hear NZ prices are pretty high!
@ pizlo
Thanks for rising against my laziness! :D

Only good thing about NZ and Australian PVC pipe, golfball barrel pipe is the most common pressure rated pipe over 25mm, it's pretty much at every plumbing merchant, and cheap too.

Just thought i'd let you know, I bought some PVC Sch40 NSF-PW 1.5" fittings in America, they work with my 40mm(1.5") PN18 PVC pipe, so that means your sch40 1.5" pipe has the same O.D but a smaller I.D 8)

Weird! The most common pipe with the designation 1 1/2" in the U.S. is the smaller i.d. stuff you're talking about (i.e. SCH - 40). The golfball barrels you can easily get in NZ are designated SDR-21 or class 200 in the U.S., and are much more difficult to find! (In my city of 30,000 people, one store has it!)
