Clear PVC pipe for DIYers

http://www.usplastic.com/catalog/cat...ookie%5Ftest=1 Thought this might be of interest to some, 10' minimum and they have to cut it to ship UPS, but all in all, reasonably priced. I'm looking at using it for the risers on my under substrate return manifold.

Well, at least my algae is pearling...

Not bad on pricing. Shipping shouldn't be too bad either considering it's so light.

I picked up a foot long clear polycarbonate 2" tube for $7/foot recently from Tap Plastics (down the street where I work). It doesn't scratch as easily and it's very strong. They cut them to any size you want and there's no minimum either.

I too have a plastics store close to home, and I've been planning on asking about clear pvc parts... I'm sure they will have it all though, and possible even do custom work(?)
