Where To Buy

Unread postAuthor: n-strike » Thu May 15, 2008 10:26 pm

Hi, I was wondering where you buy 4" pressure rated PVC. I checked Home Depot, Rona, and other hardware stores, but I can't find 4". 3" is the biggest I've seen. Oh, and I live in Canada.

Well I guess your only hope is those commercial suppliers, but I'd think you'd need to buy more then 10 feet there.

Nope, though you can get the odd pressure rated one in America. Quite hard to fine.

Have you checked your phone book for "EMCO Corp." ?

They deal mainly with contractors, but will sell to individuals too.

i found all 3 I use on mine at home depot, it really just depends on weather or not the particular store carries them, obviously the one I go to does, but they are only SCH40 rated to 120psi, but i only use mine for combustion, dont use em for pneumatics, but they also have sch40 abs, as well as 4" everything... GL hope you find your parts :P
