Re: Inexpensive building plans using PVC tubing
i built a chicken pen with 1/2 in grey conduit arched from the top horizontal board on my fence to a 2 ft wall 6 ft away from the fence then covered it all with chicken wire

2 10 ft sections would make a large arch....basically a hoop house

i just made another one against my house for a garden to keep the squirrels and possums out....its very sturdy

i didnt use fittings tho.......i got a heat gun and bent the conduit for the door and door frame.....also to flatten the cross piece that holds the arches in place....just heat up one side of the pipe and use another piece to press into it for the arches to fit into....then screw them together

heat gun can be used to many things out of pvc

i would go with the grey stuff cuz i dont think the white stuff is uv protected and will become brittle if its out in the sun......i might be wrong but i know the grey stuff is for outdoors

Schedule 40 PVC is the white colored type and is in reference to the pipe wall thickness.

Schedule 80 PVC is the grey colored type and has a greater wall thickness than schedule 40.

"God forbid we should ever be 20 years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, & always, well informed... If they remain quiet under such misconceptions it is a lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty... Let them take arms... What signify a few lives lost in a century or two? The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots & tyrants. " - Thomas Jefferson in 1787

 Quoting: BOWMAN


Thanks for clarifying Bowman. Ironically 'bows' (bowman) was my primary interest!

He must have sat there for quite a while with that heat gun!

The difference in the pipes is indeed wall thickness, and here in OZ we refer to it simply as ultra high pressure pipe. (UHP) we can get it in white, grey and orange.

There are many tribute YT vids to the bow maker, that go in to a ot more detail showing how to actually heat up, flatten and roll the PVC.

The smaller ones seem to have a lot more kick!!

-------------------

On the other structures, did you see the geodesic dome made to accomodate an army surplus parachute as a cover!! Awesome job.

I quite like the fact that with the vege gardens and green houses, the structure itself can be made to hold water, and have all the taps and fittings integrated within it. Makes for a very neat watering or recycling system.

One day I'll be on that page.... one day.... :)

Re: Inexpensive building plans using PVC tubing
Back about a year or two I connected the rain drain pipes to a run of 3" PVC Sch 40. Since the drain was going to run across my front lawn, I painted all the pipe and fittings in dull camouflage green paint. The pipe hugs the side of the front lawn with a small decline from the house to the street. Where the rain spouts feed into the pipe, I put "T" fittings with an expansion 4" to 3" coupling into which I shoved the rain spouts. Now the water doesn't pool around the house foundation where it can freeze in winter or seep into my basement in warmer weather. As an aside, I have an above ground pool in the back yard and when the pool is covered for the winter, I siphon off the rain water collecting on the pool cover and funnel it into the PVC pipe.

I know, I'm a genius. But then everybody knows that.

You are clever.

We have a similar setup for rainwater from the gutters on the northern side of the house except ours runs on a downward slope a couple inches under ground to the backyard. On the southern side of the house, we have a quick disconnect to catch rainwater to flush our toilets in a power loss situation.

Runoff water collection is a more practical solution than going to the end of our property walking through a wooded area to collect brook water especially in heavy rains and winds.

Pretty dry here in OZ at the best of times. But it has always been a dream of mine to flush the loo's with either grey water (from shower/bath etc) or rain water.

Two story house doesnt help the issue, and I would prefer a gravity feed situation.

I have seen some interesting ideas using bladders, and weights to create pressure.

Great ideas both, above! hf

Thank you.

Currently I am living in the Mid Hudson Valley region of New York and water is not an issue here considering the brook, along with much rainfall and a well and if need be we are within walking distance of a lake and the Hudson River.

I can sympathize with you as we also have property in New Mexico where our well runs 180’ deep and using a well bucket means assisted lift to hoist to the surface. During the tornado season, there are flood situations and an underground water bladder or cistern to hold extra water would be a viable option there.

We have decided upon a concrete-domes home because they are resilient in wind and economical to heat and cool and placed on top of a basement and root cellar in our opinion fits all our needs.

Electrical conduit is also grey in color. UV protected and much less cost than schedule #80. If you need extra strength go with #80.
Pressure fittings will have deeper hub for glue joints also increasing strength.
