Another post I read about stripping the paint off PVC remined me to post this.
Is it neccasary or a good idea to paint the above ground portions of my PVC? I'd think it would help to prevent the pipes from degrading due to sunlight. Even after one summer I already notice the handles on my valves are slightly yellow compared to the newer ones.
If it is a good idea, should I paint everything including the valves and handles? Any reccomended/prefered brands or colors I should use? I was thinking maybe black because it would absorb the heat(extra heat is always a plus here in WI) and it would blend in with the surroundings a little better, exp. the pipes that connect the solar panels on the roof.
