PVC and CPVC are not that same size.

Post by Irate Drake on Thu Jul 24, 2014 1:29 pm

Had the idea a month or so ago, to build a webcam mount, so I can start recording videos again.

I had some long pieces of 3/4 CPVC, that I had used some time ago to replace water lines in a house we sold. So I figured Ill just use these since they are scrap at this point anyway.

So yesterday, I stop by Lowes and buy the remaining bends, T's and couplers.

Get home and they dont fit my CPVC. Looking at the label I find they are for 3/4 PVC.  Crying or Very sad 

So now I have to make a trip back to Lowes and exchange, all because I didnt look at what I had, or what I was buying.

Im an idiot.

Went out yesterday to Lowes again. $3 in hand I started to price the CPVC connectors I needed.

After calculating $4 worth of junk, I went and looked at just the PVC pipe. 10 ft piece of PVC pipe was $2, cheaper than the CPVC connections.

So im going that route
