copcarcollector: close all your blast gates and let me know what happens. I collapsed 25’ of 7” before I could hit the remote.

PurpLev: ” metal is preferred because it has less friction ” I disagree with this statement. Pvc is seamless and smooth as glass. And the fittings all have their flaws whether metal or pvc.

as for pipe selection if you choose PVC I went with S&D it is thinner than what you posted. as for fittings I bought the fittings with the rubber in them. They are a tight seal but a total PITA to work with. I got my 6” flex at a local hose supplier for $7 a foot, but it is the heavy black stuff for leaf vacs. Here is what my system looks like.
