You'll still need some fittings that around here are only available in PVC. Not sure if the two materials are totally compatible when it comes to the solvent/cement.

finally after crusing the whole city i found some pvc but i was looking to build a 16" reactor out of 2" pvc but i could not find 2" but only 1.5" so i made my reactor 22" long and it all seemed to work out, im getting very minimal bubbles and ive only had it hooked up for 2 hours so i guess ill post later on how it works out
