Few quick questions.

Unread postAuthor: jmeyer1022 » Wed Mar 18, 2009 5:53 pm

Wondering where I can find 2" sch 80 pipe (pvc). I've checked lowes,home depot, ace hardware, and other local hardware stores. Nothing so far.
I found a place to buy 2.5" pipe locally but they don't carry the fittings, where might I find these besides online?
I'm moving back to combustion from pneumatics. I know I know, but I have my reasons. I live in Connecticut, so I doubt I'll find many places. I found tractor supply which sells cam locks and SDR 21 about an hour away. If I have to order offline I will, last resort hopefully.

All the one's I've called, warehouse and small ones don't carry SDR pipe, which is where tractor supply comes in handy and if they have sch 40 2.5" pipe, no fittings. :/

Home Depot should have the Schedule 80 PVC, but not in plumbing, it's in the electrical department. It's a fairly standard item. If not, call electrical supply places and ask about conduit.

thought conduit was completely different from sch 80. The one pipe I did look at was sch 40 2.5 conduit pipe. Can anyone else or pharm give more insight on this, I googled it and I'm finding nothing.

The gray Sch 80 PVC is actually a UV-resistant outdoor conduit. The SDR21 is a lighter weight conduit designed for less stressful applications. I actually just made a sleeved barrel this week. The guys aren't joking about the two fitting just barely, I had to hammer for about 15 minutes to get my 4.5' barrel to go together.

That's probably because you have to enter a zip code to find it. The conduit isn't sold online, it's only available in store.
