That PVC you linked above is schedule 40, really heavy stuff. Like I said, there is a confusing mix of names…and being called DWV doesn’t make it the PVC you want (if you wind up using it). The spec I listed above is the one you want (again, if you choose PVC). It’s light enough to be able to hang easily (don’t try hanging the schedule 40 by yourself). It can be tough to find, but I got mine at a regional lumber yard called Carter’s Lumber for about $16 for a 10’ stick. Some box stores carry it, some don’t…you almost have to check individually. To repeat something else, consider the costs with the fittings….the straight part is probably actually the cheapest of the total system.
