I did a lot of internet reading before I installed my PVC ductwork (8” mains, 6” secondaries, and 4” branch connectors) under the floor of my shop and the writer that seemed the best informed to me was this one: http://home.comcast.net/~rodec/woodworking/articles/DC_myths.html I have had my system up and running for five years and never had reason to question his conclusions. He does say that the greatest danger with PVC is personal shocks. I don’t get them because my ducting is mostly under the floor. I do have an 8” vertical PVC pipe that comes straight up out of the floor to the input of my DC (5 Hp Craftex cyclone) but I’ve never even gotten a shock from it. That may or may not be because it’s wrapped with foil. Read the article. The guy knows his stuff.
