where do you live? i know in the united states home depot has 4" pipe, the fittings are dwv though, so youll have to order that stuff online or find pressure rated stuff elsewhere. what valves are you going to use? supahs, or something homemade?

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

i can find pressure rated up to 4" at any tru value store i go to around here, check for tractor supply co.'s in the area, they're one of my favorite stores for fittings. lowes and homedepot usually dont have much in the way of large pressure rated items

Oh, that's a fairly standard barrel-sealing piston valve in a tee.
Being a tried and true design, I can garantee it'll work if well built.

As to finding 4" pipe, I found mine at home depot, although that store didn't have it last time I checked... I'm down to 4' of it.
Lowes didn't have any either.

18$ and some change for a 10 foot piece of 4" sch 40 (220 psi) at a home-cheapo, im pretty sure that every home depot carries this pipe

lowes hardly sells it, if they do they sell it for like $12 something for a 5' piece.. ripoff

prices on pvc pipe have skyrocketed mainly due to the hurricanes and the war
