I paid about $50 bucks for 14 feet of sewer and drain pipe and around $9 to $15 for the wyes and elbows (6”). When I researched all the prices for pipe and fittings this was the best price I could find and I came to the conclusion that usually you do end up paying more for all the pipe but it made sense to me (everything just adds up with all the pipe and fittings you need for even a small shop like mine). If I did it with metal pipe forget about it, it would have cost 50% more than what I paid for the PVC and like I said I have a very small shop compared to other shops. I haven’t chose to glue anything because I want to be able to use it all down the line if I move to another shop. I’m just going to wrap sealant tape around all the places that need it. $25 for 10 ft that’s less than what I paid but the fitting prices you said that does seem expensive unless it’s thick gauge metal. I bought all my fittings from an Ace hardware outlet and the pipe at a local plumbing supply store to save on shipping. If I bought that same pipe from where I bought the fittings the shipping would have been almost $200.
