Canadian Spudders: SDR-21?

Unread postAuthor: EphOph » Wed Oct 08, 2008 10:43 am

Does anyone know where to find this pipe in southern Ontario? I was able to locate SDR26 in Toronto but after several weeks of searching, the mystical golf ball pipe still eludes me...

Now I don't live in Canada, but I did notice this when I was calling around for the pipe. When I first started calling around I asked if they had "SDR-21" pipe, but turns out it is better known as "class 200" pipe. So you may try calling some of your local pipe stores and asking for class 200 pipe instead of SDR-21.

My local hardware stores (including Rona) only sell DWV pipe, and it doesn't even have an NSF rating. Just says "vent pipe" or something along those lines - definitely not something I would put under any pressure (it's also very lightweight so likely cellular core). I have found only one local pressure pipe supplier for anything above 2". They told me that they don't carry or supply class 200 pipe and didn't know what I was talking about when I asked if they had SDR-21.

I found one supplier near Toronto that lists it in their product section, but a crate quantity is the minimum order.

Demon - yes, SDR-21 is rated for 200psi for all nominal sizes, which is why it is sometimes referred to as class 200. Just as SDR-26 is called class 160 because all sizes are rated for 160psi.

As has been said, refer to it as "Class 200" when talking to the employees. I had to do that for SDR-21 in my town. The guy looked at me like I was crazy until I said "It might be called class 200".

Yes, most of my searching has been done online. I have asked the only (pressure rated) PVC supplier in town for both Class 200 and SDR sizes. Looks like I'll have to plan a road trip to the USA.

I did indeed order some from BCArms. However, that was nearly two months ago and the owner has stopped responding to my emails, so I think it's safe to assume that I've been ripped off. I don't want to order any more online, which is why I'm willing to drive at least a couple hundred km to get it.
