PVC Prices

Unread postAuthor: noname » Fri Jul 07, 2006 7:29 pm

Is it just the Bay Area or is PVC really expensive everywhere now? Like 2 weeks ago I bought a 10 foot length of 2" PVC for $10, 1 dollar a foot. Now it's $2.25 a foot for 2" and that's just Sch. 40! Does anyone know where to get cheap pipe? Online is OK but I like fast shipping.

For SCH 40 4" PVC it cost me $7.50 a foot and you have to buy it in 10 foot lengths. None of the local hardware stores around where I live carry SCH 40 pipe, none of them even know what it is. I have to get mine from and industrial suplie store.

Lol, I get 2" (50mm) for $0.70 a foot.... I can get 100 ft for $70 or less, but Milhrad is right, the shipping would be insane....

I wonder why prices are so high, Copper is a rip off in the US, but it's like free in China :(

PVC is really expensive compared what it used to be, but I guess it's much higher in other places... damn that expensive crude oil, petroeluem based products are a rip off...

... well hurricane katrina and all the other recent natural occurances have sent prices of all building materials skyrocketing. Basically, they had to send huge amounts of all these things to the destroyed and damaged regions to rebuild, which raised prices on the remaining goods. Plywood really shot up in price, and i imagine that pvc was needed as plumbing supplies in the areas. Copper has always been expesnive, if you had a penny from , i dont remember the exact year but 1940s maybe? probably about then i forgot, they are made of 100% copper and are worth like 80 grand in cold hard cash if you own one. Now penys are made of hardly any copper, mixed with zinc they are pretty much just copper plated for the look, like 10% copper 90 zinc or something, and will soon be 100% zinc.

Also brass fittings and pipe is expensive as hell because brass is unfortunately an alloy. The alloy is made of tin, combined with copper. And your copper = mucho dinero unfortunately for us.

Not sure on my penny facts for the % and years but its around there.

Hope that answers your question.
