PVC PIPE


TO MINIMIZE SHIPPING COSTS WE SUPPLY ONLY THE COLUMN CAP AND BASE KITS.  WE EXPECT CUSTOMERS WILL FIND THEIR OWN LOCAL SOURCES OF SUPPLY FOR THE PVC PIPE WHICH IS READILY AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT NORTH AMERICA .

To meet all your project needs, column caps and bases are offered in 4 nominal sizes (6", 8", 10" and 12") and 2 types (IPS and SWR).

IPS TYPE
The IPS type are sized to fit  IPS PVC Pipe which is normally sold in 20 ft. lengths. IPS pipe is typically white in color and has actual outside diameters as follows:

                                               Nominal Size                 Actual Outside Diameter
                                            6"                              6.625
  
                                   8"                              8.625
                                    10"                             10.75 
                                    12"                             12.75


SWR TYPE
The SWR type are sized to fit SDR 35 PVC Pipe that is most often sold in lengths of 13 ft.  SDR pipe is typically green in color.  When the pipe is primed and painted, the prime coat easily covers the green color.  Outside diameters are as follows:

                                               Nominal Size                 Actual Outside Diameter
                                            6"                              6.275
                                    8"                               8.40
                                   10"                             10.50 
                                   12"                             12.50

NOTE: Sometimes SDR35 pipe is more economical to buy due to its thinner wall thickness. For project requiring less than 13 feet of pipe you should consider using the SDR35.

Before ordering  cap and base kits, consult a local Water works / pipe distributor or supplier for PVC pipe prices and availability in your area.  If your local building supply company does not stock pipe in these larger sizes, you can contact Water works,plumbing or irrigation supply companies. These are normally listed in your local  Yellow Pages under Waterworks, Plumbing Fixtures & Supplies, or Irrigation Systems and Equipment.
