I think I need to get around to painting the new PVC pipe on my equipment pad and for my solar install before the summer ... thinking that it protects the pipe from the solar UV.
But, I seem to recall some discussion that the paint does not actually protect the PVC from sun, so I am wondering if it needs to be done or not.
Questions to anyone:
Are the pipes painted just for looks or does the paint actually help protect the PVC from the sun?
Painting the solar PVC black should help with heating (a little) better to go flat or gloss for this? ... even though white would blend better with the roof.
Stick with the Krylon Fusion or just find the cheapest stuff I can (if indeed the paint does not really protect the PVC)?
