You have to ask for Class 200 which is SDR21 (200psi) .147 inch wall or Class 160 which is SDR26 (160psi) .120 wall.

2-1/2 SDR21 has nominal ID of 2.581 inch.

2-1/2 SDR26 has nominal ID of 2.635 inch.

Shooting soda cans is lots of fun. It's the sudden stop at the tree that is spectacular.

If you don't live in an area with a lot of agriculture, there probably ISN'T an irrigation store.

If that's the case, check a plumbing store with a trade section (i.e. most plumbing stores). Some will front as a kitchen/bathroom store with a trade section out back stacked to the roof with a variety of plumbing pipes, fittings and accessories.

That's how it is here anyway, might be done different in the States.

I'm in the US. Big bos stores don't carry it as it is not a home improvement item. As mentioned earlier, find out where the trades shop for industrial systems. That is how I got mine.

Hint in the US, look for http://ferguson.com/ Not all locations have it in stock, but they can order a 20 foot section for you. Find a buddy that wants to split it with you. I did. Did I mention they do commercial sizes?
