    UK Supplier of Cheap PVC Solvent Weld Pipe?

    Hi Builders,

    I have purchased a set of plans from Roger Dodger Aviation for my first flight sim rig/pit build. I'm in the UK, and at the moment am struggling to find a supplier of cheap 25mm PVC pipe and accessories, in white. Does anyone here have any experience of advice of who to buy from to complete the materials list at a sub-100 price tag?

    Cheers,

    Steve

    Great stuff... thanks for the link Alex, that is certainly cheap enough!

    I've had a look through the Seller's shop, but they don't appear to sell the elbows, T pieces and caps for the rest of the project. So, has anyone found a source of white accessories for 25mm pipe as well?

    Yes, it seems that I have had to compromise on the gauge of pipe and settle for 21.5mm overflow pipe from Screwfix/B&Q. It doesn't seem to be quite as rigid/strong as the 25mm stuff, so I've made a couple of modifications to my prototype already to allow for this lack of rigidity in a couple of places. But very happy with the results so far.

    Were you not better off just going to Plumb Centre or a specialist Plumming retailer and just getting the right stuff you needed first time then you wouldnt have to compromise and you would off got it at trade prices likely!

    Well I couldn't find a supplier, specialist or otherwise near me, or online, that offered a range of 25mm 90/45deg bends, tee pieces and stop ends. As you will see above, after you provided the link to 25mm pipe on eBay, I asked if anyone could recommend a supplier that could provide the necessary 25mm accessories and I received no replies, so I went with the next do-able solution.
