PVC Pipe and Tools
PVC is the type most commonly used in warm winter climates. PVC pipe is rated by two different systems; the first is the "class" system (Cl) the other is the "schedule" system (SCH). Schedule pipe is rated by the pipe's wall thickness, while class pipe is rated by the pipe's operating pressure. All PVC pipe has uniform outside diameter sizes. So pipe of the same size has the same outside diameter, regardless of which type or rating they are. This allows the fittings that join them together to be a universal size; the same fittings will fit all of them. All PVC should be protected from sunlight.
Hydro-Rain makes Blu-Lock pipe which can be used for the laterals. Laterals include all piping from the valve to the sprinkler heads. Blu-Lock pipe is connected via Blu-Lock fittings which are "push fit." They require no glue and cut installation time by 50 percent. Blu-Lock by Hydro-Rain is the fastest, greenest, irrigation installation method in the world. Blu-Lock is for non-constant pressure, valve-out, cold water, outdoor direct burial irrigation connections only.
PVC Flexible Pipe
VarTek's Flexible PVC Pipe is designed for use with risers or swing risers. The construction of VarTek's Flexible PVC Pipe is comprised of a flexible PVC component and a rigid PVC component which makes handling easier in warm or cold climates. The rigid reinforcement allows the pipe to make tight bends without kinking or breaking. When properly installed, the product is nearly indestructible. VarTek's Flexible PVC Pipe can be readily assembled with standard schedule 40 PVC fittings using flexible PVC glues.
Funny Pipe & Swing Joints
Funny Pipe and Swing Joints are a smart alternative to installing sprinkler heads onto nipple risers. Swing Joints allow for somewhat flexible placement and provide protection from damage to sprinkler heads and PVC pipe from heavy lawnmowers, automobiles, and equipment.
Glue and Primer
Glue and Primer are a must if you are installing PVC pipe. PVC pipe and fittings need to be solvent welded together using primer and glue.
