I just got the parts to make one of these, and I encountered a few simple problems: Lowes and another LHS (Local Hardware Store ) , both do not have anything with 1.75 inch PVC or CPVC pipes. Not the pipes itself or the other fittings. No big deal, just used 1.5 inch and scaled it down likewise. Also it is extreamly hard to find anything with 5/8 inch barbed fittings. I tried almost everything to make it work, and finally the LHS had one 5/8 inch barb and I used a few adapters to get it to fit right. I still can't figure anything out for the other side.

Anyways my real question is, is there any problem with using PVC cement on the connections?
