    Where can you buy black PVC pipe?

    Where are people getting the black 2" PVC schedule 40 pipe used on the solar systems? I can't seem to track it down at any of the local stores or online.

    Re: Where can you buy black PVC pipe?

    auto spray paint is what I used.
    but I own a $15 pistol grip temperature gun, amazon special a few years ago.
    on a sunny day walk through a shopping mall parking lot and see what cars and
    paint temps are the hottest. I found a good deep maroon that I already had that was
    far better than the flat black i was using. just my filter and surrounding plumbing
    I get 3 degrees up, back to the pool.
    food for thought.....

    Krylon Fusion is the paint most commonly recommended for PVC.
