Thread: Schedule 80 Clear PVS

    Schedule 80 Clear PVS

    Sorry meant PVC in thread title but don't know how to edit it...Well my new 190gal rimless/braceless/starphire is sitting at top of driveway in a crate awaiting installation into family room. Using a sump and CPR overflow (CS202 is a monster!!).
    I don't really see anyone using clear pvc for their plumbing from overflow to sump and back. Any reason why? I'm thinking of using it unless there is some inherent problem/issue

    Well I'll make a guess. Besides the cost, clear anything is a great way to grow algae.

    Cost is about it, I use it on 2 tanks.

    Clear Schedule 80 Rigid PVC Pipe from US Plastics.

    I ordered some Clear Schedule 80 Rigid PVC Pipe through Home Depot a few years ago.

    I recommend planning on some cleanouts, give yourself a way to run or pull a brush through.
