In believe that is right. Remember, you can always paint it with krypton fusion. Let it cure 24 hours and all is good. Paxtins tank is all white pvc painted red and it is still holding strong.Flexible PVC comes in 3 colors right? White, grey, and black sch40 and white and black in sch80?
I have never mixed the two, just used all Schedule 40. However there should be no issues atall as they are designed to work with each other. The only fittings I'd potentially be concerned with would be threaded sch40 fittings to threaded sch80.Do you find any issues using sch40 pipe with sch80 fittings and elbows?
I wasn't aware rigid schedule 80 even came in multiple colours??? Pretty sure it's only Gray....Personally I used sch80, looks better, comes in tons of colors, no words all over it and was only an extra $25 for the entire build.
I know know I could take acetone and stroke the pipes real good to get the words off the pipe and clean it up and then paint it all but the extra $25 was worth not having to do all that myself.
Could be a fun project for those DIYers out there too though.
That being said SCH40 is still great and works just the same especially for the pretty low pressures our tanks see compared to a home/industrial shower/toilet/sink plumbing setup.
Colour = Furniture Grade PVC (Preeettyyy)I guess I meant white hardware store to the colored pipe.
What's red that you hate so much?Ugh. Schedule 40 is much easier to find stuff for. I really hate red.
