The chap who built it says he used Schedule 40 PVC water pipe and glued it together. I presume Schedule 40 is some American standard and I imagine this is water supply pipe (hot or cold?), rather than for the waste water.
Can anyone suggest what sort of piping I should ask for here in the UK and what the correct fittings and adhesive would be?
Also, as the stand will have to live outside, is this sort of pipe affected by sunlight? I know some plastics become very brittle after they have been left in sunlight for a length of time. If sunlight does affect it, would a coat of ordinary paint protect it?
Any helpful comments would be much appreciated.
