And Nichoai you do know that the 220PSI is the working pressure and not the bursting pressure right?

omg are u serious? i never knew that....lol..... [sarcasim]

i was simply stating the pressure rating on the side of the pipe from memory because i work with 4" quite a bit

ive seen 1" pvc take a 600+ psi charge of co2 and not blow up

then it got dropped and a 1/4" brass quick disconnect fitting turned into a projectile

Hehe, wish I could've seen that.
Does anybody have footage of PVC failing in a pressur application?
That would be a neat thing to see, maybe this summer…

i saw a video of some 3/4" flowguard CPVC bursting with like some crazy amount of pressurized water. I think the pipe was rated for a few hundred psi but it actually burst in like the thousands (I wanna say 1400 or 1700, maybe 14,000). It was actually boring, it split lengthwise and was more like a drunken high pressure beer piss coming out than any cataclysmic explosion of pvc shards. Now if this were air im sure it would have been a different story
