Default Black PVC in town

Anyone know of any plumping places with a big selection of black PVC fittings?
Thanks
Dave

I didn't know PVC came in black.
Are you sure you are not talking about ABS..?

Dave if you find a place please be sure to post it here for future reference.

Have you checked Western International Plastics yet?

Call me nuts... but isn't the dark grey stuff CPVC? Suppose it doesn't really matter, CPVC is just approved for hot water instead of cool...

The dark Grey PVC is Schedule 80 where as the white PVC is Schedule 40. The difference is the pipe wall thickness. The Sch80 is a little thicker and can handle slightly higher pressure.

You should be able to get Sch80 PVC at any major plumbing supplier like Emco or the like. Take a look in the Yellow Pages and see what major companies are in your area.

I called every where nobody has any. It's is odd, I received some stuff from Oceansmotion and it all had dark grey/black PVC schedule 40. Dropped him a email and he said he can get it at most any plumping supply place in Ontario, it's common. So who knows, on the phone every one thought I was an idiot and said it doesn't even exist.

So white PVC plumping inside the tank no black.

Edit
Andy OK your nuts just don't ever show me

Muck tried them first no go

Do you have a Fabco Plastics in Calgary? They should carry it. (Sch40 dark grey)
If not, there is one in Edmonton here. Maybe someone would be nice enough to haul it down for you...
