    I just recently installed 1/2" PVC pipe that is rated to 600 psi and put it all together with the standard purple glue. My compressor only goes to 150 psi so there is no issue. I got all the pipes, fittings, drain valves and electrical EMT conduit hangers at Lowes. Works great, looks good, easy to install, very simple to change and the price is great. I also installed high flow couplers and nipples and what a difference they make. I will try to add pictures later.

    @bronco290 PVC? Are you sure that's not ABS? Hopefully you live in an environment that doesn't make the PVC brittle! I've decided I'm going the carbon pipe route if I ever do get to installing this sytem..

    What's the cost difference between ABS and black iron? Right now I just have a short black iron run off of my compressor but I'm wanting to plumb the whole shop (40'X60') and also run a line outside to my covered pad. Was looking at black iron but if the ABS would be cheaper I may go that way. My shop gets HOT in South Georgia summers, would that be a problem for ABS?

    Badass there brother.

    Most of the guys on this thread noted multiple issues with PVC/ABS piping, mainly concerns of seasoning especially in outdoor situations. For that reason alone, I will be going black pipe. Even though it's more expensive, it will last longer and keep my toys/family safer.

    I still think black iron is the best permanent system. Last I looked, it was about $14 for 10'. Pretty reasonable for piece of mind.

    My air system is pressurized 100 percent if the time. I would not leave PVC pressurized. It would worry me.

    In addition, it seems counterproductive to depressurize your air system when you are done. You paid to make that compressed air, might as well have it ready for the next time you need it.

    I checked and it is PVC. I live in Virginia and it is installed in my garage. I would not run it outside and leave it exposed to sunlight. I do not keep the system pressurized all the time...no need to. I am not concerned about it 'exploding," as there would be indications of failure prior to such a catastrophic event. None of the solutions offered are bad, they each have their pros and cons. Here is a link to a web site that provides info on each type of pipe. And yes, they do not recommend PVC. https://www.hoseandfittingsetc.com/...pe-of-pipe-should-i-use-for-my-air-compressor
