Coloured PVC pipe for drain plumbing

Postby daz4321 » Fri Mar 31, 2017 9:27 pm

I have had a request from a customer to design, build and instal their sump plumbing but they have requested coloured PVC like the stuff Bulk Reef Supply in the USA sell however I cannot find a supplier/source for the UK any ideas welcomed.

thanks for the idea, have sent them a query as on their site it says "virtually waterproof" which does not instil confidence for the use I need.

What colour are they after? Only aquatic coloured pipework I am aware is red or blue.

http://www.bulkreefsupply.com/pumps-plu ... ubing.html selection from USA but no shipping to UK :(

colour undecided until I can find out the options I can get :/ They just wanted a show sump area!!!!! coloured pipework, custom designed multi chamber sump (coloured to match pipework) etc...etc...

Just need to find a supply I can purchase then decisions can be made according to supply constraints.

sent contact to link for shipping pricing ...maybe

let me know if you get any relevant info on EU supplier/distributer.

If not who is up for a bulk buy to help cover shipping lol best so far is $50 of pipe and $130 to ship :o

edit : plus import fees and tax :roll:

****** hell :shock: but one guy on UR posted this You could always have them ship whatever you want to Ron Fenton @ STS imports. They send a container over once a month. Not fast, but it is a cheap way of getting stuff over from the states. To give you an idea I was quoted £100 to ship 5 wheels and tyres over for my American classic car so a bit of pipe won't cost much at all.
Unfortunately there will be the import duty to the tax man to pay on top if you're spending much more than 40 quid.
