so You aussies say that Reece is a good one for pressure PVC. Someone mentioned 12 bar, that will be fine to crank up to 200 if you ever wanted to, or will that be pushing it just a tiny bit? I know someone mentioned that it goes up to 3x the rating.

I was at bunnings and recce today and checked out the PVC piping but I have no idea if theyre pressure rated, Ive already bought some PVC piping from bunnings before for my combustion spud gun and its worked fine so should they be alright? Also people on this forum seem to be saying sprinker valves are the way to go, why is this?

cheers.

Look for the PN rating of the pipe they come in PN9 PN12 PN15 PN18 PN20 the numbers represent there running pressure in bar (1bar=14.7Psi)But the most common is PN12 and PN18 i have yet to find a PN20 piece of pipe.
