    110mm Beige Polypropylene Pipe 200mm

    I'm looking for a short piece of 110mm beige polypropylene pipe, about 200mm long.

    when i built my last bio i didn't have the time to wait to get a hold of some, and to buy from a supplier i have to get it in a 5 meter length at over 100

    has anyone got connections, or know anyone at a drum or bio manaufacturer who might sell me a short section of pipe?
    like burtons drums, draco drums, Synergy ect...

    as last time i didn't get very far contacting them for just a small piece of pipe...
    i could always hack the short sections of 110mm pipe off my bakki shower outlet!
    but i'd hoped to sell that if i don't end up using it...

    i was hoping to get 200mm for less than 20
    if i have to i'll carve the 110mm spigot connections out of my shower filter,
    and weld a square Poly panel over the holes...not that i'm tight you know....

    if they were closer i'd pop round and try and leverage an off cut from them

    I'm sure you'd get a lot of uptake if you sold bios for that price! I would have bloody ripped your arm off!!

    I was planning to make a large bio filter next year. I'm not sure that I'm up to making anything this professional looking but if I was to do it I'd buy a 1metre share for 20.

    it appears my search is over...
    i asked the plastic company for a price for 110mm SDR17 polypropylene pressure pipe,
    and was quoted 14.50p plus vat!?

    so i've ordered a full 5 meter length says 3 week lead time but at that price i'll wait!
    unless i get a call back saying they have mis quoted me

    That sounds cheap for 5m of 110mm Dave

    I was looking at 3m (2m + 1m) of 3" pressure pipe and that was nearly 60

    yeah it's wrong, online you are looking at 300.74p inc vat and delivery for a length of 110mm SDR 17....
    but might give me some bargaining power when they realise they've f...messed up

    What's the difference between the beige stuff and the terracotta stuff? I've got some 110mm terracotta soil pipe if that's any good to you Dave?

    got the terracotta stuff myself mate,
    needs to be the proper stuff or it won't weld properly,

    last thing you want to do is come home to a cabin flooded with two and ahalf thousand gallons of water cause the 110mm connection popped off

    Makes sense Dave.

    What about JBR Plastics? They custom make bio chambers which looking at the colour of my one are very likely to be PP

    already tried JBR mate, (though the thickness of pipe they use is too thin) and also tried Burtons drums , and Draco.
    they are not interested...

    i might try reaching out to DVS who built my drum,
    but even if they said yes, god knows how long it would take to get through customs from holland...
    might try ali express would be quicker from china lol!

    That's a shame. Looks like you'll either have to buy a full length or cut the bit off your shower

    Apparently PP can be heat welded to another bit of PP but not to PVC. It doesn't take properly.

    I had some terracotta 110mm soil and he said that's no good for the reason mentioned above
