Pretty bad, because at my home depot you can get 10 feet of 3" for 6 bucks.

Why the hell are you complaining? That much costs $50 or more over here. Count yourself lucky. Jees, some people don't know how good they have it.

good or bad


Depends if it was pressure rated or not. Home Depot and Lowe's no longer sells pressure rated 3" pipe in 10' lengths..only the little 2' project sections that Thunderlord mentioned. In my area, I've got to go to the big time commercial plumbing stores and they can sell me only a 20' section which goes for around $25.

If it says Cellular Core on it, you've wasted your money...don't use it to build a cannon of any type.

If you got pressure rated pipe there, you did ok.

Ditto. They're complaining over $4 :shock:

I personally pay about $134USD for 18' of 3".

Indeed MrC.

You bought Cellular Core? :S
Take it back and say you made a mistake.
Pressurising Cellular Core is like playing hot potatoe with NitroGlycerin..
