Is the white SDR35 less than the $71/piece they want for the green? My entire system is plumbed with white SDR35. I don’t remember what it cost, but it was reasonable. I cut off and threw away the gasketed bells from the ends. Nothing needs to be glued – all your connections between pipe and fittings should be screwed, and taped if you like, and flex can go on with hose clamps. Hose #56355K34 from McMaster-Carr is a good fit – just carefully remove the wire from about 1.5” at the ends and it slips right over the pipe. You can get blast gates that fit over the pipe from Clearvue.

The only drawback is that having a thicker wall than the green, SDR 35 is a little heavier.
