I came to this site cuz i did a google about this topic.
I have a med sized air compressor that is technically portable. It came with wheels and a bar to carry it with. I have since put it up in the air. I had to do this because of floods and it did get flooded in the past, i have drained it and my dad got it to pressurize again after using some oil to make it work again. It is an oilless compressor. I have used half in sch 40 pvc its rated at 600 psi. the dials on my compressor dont go above 300 psi. I dont see how this should be a problem but i have seen repeated postings that it can shatter sending shards out like shrapnel. One of these postings said that they used pvc that was rated at 100 psi. If you ask me he might as well been using paper. Very few of these postings gave me details as to the type of pvc used and the psi for it. I did read one posting from a guy on here that 80% of the wood shops in the country use pvc. Im trying to be as rational as possible with this project god knows i dont want this pvc blowing on me least of all with me in the basement. From what i have read i will need to replace the outside fitting with something that can handle the temp variations.
Any input would be appreciated.
