Thank you upstate thats what I am saying, or that just proves that it is not doesn’t move what it claims.

+1 for fred. I got mine at a plumbing supply house. the pipe was $2 a foot, and the fittings were well over $10 each and I think the Y’s were like $18-$20. the fitting will be the most costly part of the venture.

If I were you I would check the size of the impeller on your DC. if it is 12” or less it will never move 1700 cfm. you may be served well by 4” pipe depending on how long the run is. there is a point of to large of a pipe. The larger the pipe the slower the air moves, to a certain point. I am offering you a link to Bill Pentz's page. I am not saying his page is gospel but there is a lot of factual information in one place. It all depends on what you are in search of. If you want 100% collection, or just a fairly clean place to work.
