Fluval fx5 PVC pipe

Recommended Posts

Jumped the gun whilst at bunnings today and bought 25mm PVC pipe but got home and clearly it's not 25mm wondering what size it is? I know I could just disconnect it from my tank and measure it but I'm sure someone would know, also any advice as to where to buy the PVC pipe in black as bunnings only carries orange and cream

Plumbers use internal diameter so 25mm PVC pipe has internal diameter of 25mm and external size varies with pressure rating. example class 12 pipe can handle 120 foot of vertical water pressure and is thicker than class 6 but thinner than class 18.

Electricians measure external diameter of PVC conduit. I think all electrical conduit is the same thickness?

You can stain PVC black with tie-dye stain or paint it black.

the fitting is 25mm, go to irrigation shop on moss st underwood and buy the black ribbed stuff, use it all on mine and very secure, just heat the end in hot water then turn as you push it on
