Re: PVC pipe

Original poster: Rich Simpson <richcreations@xxxxxxxxx>

I am using the green pvc sewer pipe you speak of, and it is nice and thin walled, but keep in mind that the green 4" pipe is measured O.D., and the white is I.D. this means that the 4" is really bigger then 4" the green is not. otherwise, treat it the same

Is anyone familiar with the light green, thin walled PVC? Lowe's has it and the wall thickness is about half that of schedule 40. Is this type of PVC pipe OK to use for the secondary coil? Is it the same as or superior for use as a secondary coil? Does it need to be dried and sealed the same as regular white PVC? Does anyone know where to get tubing made from plastics that are better suited for building coils? Is ABS superior to PVC? Is there a web site where this kind of information is located? Thanks for any help. I have been planning this coil carefully for a long time and I am trying to use the best materials I can get for each part of the coil.
