I am unaware of color coding on PVC (copper yes but not PVC) maybe it
denotes Schedule 40 and Schedule 80 pipe (different wall thickness). What
size, length and price are you talking about. Even with color, there should
still be printed markings indicating a difference. Any spec numbers on the
pipe like ASTM xxxxx. If the prices are close, it might just be a different
Quantify the price difference between the two difference pipes.
Other than color are there any OTHER marking differences between the
two?? The specs printed on the pipe are long, detailed specs,
Schedule rating, pressure rating, temperature rating are a few of the
Read the specs carefully to see what the differences are. If the
prices are within a few percentage points of each other, then the
decision gets a bit easier, bUT NOT until you read the COMPLETE spec
printed on the pipe.
