    Good Day all, i am busy putting a pond together, i have been told i shouldn't use white electrical conduit for the plumbing. I was told to get blue pipping and grey elbows, does anyone know the specific name for this piping and where is Cape Town (Parow). Can i get this?

    Conduit is just there to protect your wires. Used it on my pond and going on for 10+ years.

    The blue pvc pipes are stronger and tolerate higher pressure than the white and that is why they are used for the plumbing underground. Especially when your plumping runs under your dam. You dont want it to fail as that would mean breaking up the dam to fix pipes. But the normal white pvc above ground works well. No need to get the blue ones

    Most agri markets should have it.
