Honestly have never worked with it read about it in the DIY threads. Someone was making a sump out of it...to risky for me LOL. Supposedly you can glue it just like PVC pipe. So I guess you could construct ribs to reinforce if you had to. Lost the picture I had of it with SKU and thickness. Menards has big sheets and HD has various sized sheets as I recall.
I actually have seen that thread about the sump it was pretty cool! I will look into it tonight and keep yall updated!

Been doing some thinking and instead of a 180 I am planning on a 220 or something similar what do y’all think? It won’t affect my plans much.
