I had planned to use the thin-wall PVC made for drains and such to run my ducting, and I figured to save some money I would just bend the pipe wherever I could get away with it to save on buying bends and such.
Well, a light went off in my head today, and I realized I’ve forgotten about a very relevant resource for this project: my Mom and step-father both work in the HVAC field! Ah-hah!
So, I made a call to my Mom today, who works in the office at a large HVAC supplier, and asked her about spiral wound steel galvanized pipe.
It turns out I can get the steel pipe from her cheaper than I could even the low-cost thin-wall PVC, SWEET!
Now I’m in the process of measuring and figuring where I’ll run all my ducting so I can put in an order in the next few days.
Hey, I’ll take high-grade spiral-wound galvanized steel piping over PVC any day!
