Looking at replumbing our solar panel to a new location this summer on the first level overhang at the rear of our house. A moderate lift and some extra piping will obviously be required.
I know PVC is the "usual" pipe that should be used, but it's proving tough to find around here in appropriate sizes with all the matching appropriate fittings I'll need...and what is available costs 6 arms and 8 legs, and all the fittings, even more. I might have to sell a child..
ABS on the other hand can be found almost anywhere (Home Depot, Lowes, etc etc etc), and all the fittings I could possibly want are readily available and cheap, as are the long runs of 2" pipe that I'll be wanting to use.
So, who's got the "been there done that" Tshirt with ABS on pressure lines, and what's your thoughts? Yes, I'm aware of the UV issues but honestly if it becomes brittle a few years down the road (on what little will be directly exposed to the sun, not much in the grand scheme of things) I can easily replace it.
I've seen all sorts of stories ranging from "OMG disaster waiting to happen" right through to "My entire system is plumbed with PVC and it works just fine", up to and including solar plumbing, so I'm specifically looking for insight from those who have used and their experiences.
