Re: Better source for Large Diameter PVC Pipe

I wonder if you can get PE ducting.. I saw it in a catalog, and it would be
lower loss (although probably not significant) than PVC...
PVC might be better structurally...
As for midnight supply... around here, where there is still a fair amount of
construction going on, getting 3-5 foot pieces of fairly large diameter pipe
is pretty easy without resorting to stealth. When they're installing drain
lines to keep the houses from sliding off the side of the hill, they don't
want to fool with all those short scraps..
The key is being in the right place at the right time... 3PM in the
afternoon is a good time (quitting time...when they're cleaning up from the
day's work...). Acooler with a couple six packs of beer and a couple six
packs of sodas or sports drinks, and you're in a great situation to grab a
section, and make some useful acquaintances for future acquisitions (always
nice when they don't just hack up a scrap that got a bit screwed up, but put
it aside carefully...)
