I was thinking grey pipe. Black and grey. Throw in red somewhere to tie the colors in.

Grey is strictly Schedule 80 from all that I've searched. You could do black pipe with Grey schedule 80 fittings...

Nice, certainly an option, I don't shop BRS for pipe cause it's so insanely expensive there so probably why I missed it lol

Although it's still not Schedule 80 Grey so might look off. You could do, light grey, Schedule 80 dark grey and Red @Katrina71

For the prices we pay for tanks, sumps, pumps, wavemakers etc. The plumbing was the least of my concerns on my build...What's an extra $30 on plumbing?

How can we incorporate a small amount of red to it tie together?
Will you be running a manifold?
That could look cool in red with the rest grey?
Or have the return plumbing red and the drains grey or some variation of that?

Fair enough, for me I look at Formufit and at $7ish for a 5 foot piece of pipe vs BRS's $10ish for a piece that's over a foot shorter... yeah can't do it. Lol

I guess it's more of a concern for me cause I need like 120ish Feet of the stuff so cost tends to factor in a bit...

And it's because I'm frugal on PVC costs and such that I can spend a little more on my sump;Bookworm;Writing;)
