those pipes are pressure rated and most of the fittings say sch 40

by the way the bar code was all messed up on that ball valve when i was purchasing it wouldn't ring up, so a guy who was working there asked me how much it costed and i told him $4 and the guy laughed at me until he saw the discount price on the valve.

in the upcoming presidential election, there will be several candidates who will be running, one of whom is Hillary Clinton. Now WAIT A SECOND!!! I though there was some sort of rule that prevented someone from serving more than two terms in office. Vote Against Hillary: Presidential Elections 08

Sch 40 is a measure of dimensions. PW indicates whether it's pressure rated or not. If it says NSF PW youre safe, but if it says NSF DWV, scrap it.
