Hey all Trying to find some 90mm pvc pipe for kayak trailer. the local plumber supplies place only had the storm water stuff which looks a bit thin could crack under the stress and bumps of the road. Any one know where i can get the thicker stuff.

Ask for sewer pipe. Its 100mm diameter and much thicker.

Cheers for that. Picked some up this morning, much thicker and shouldn't have to change the mounting points either. Thanks for the tip.

Not sure sewer pvc is uv stabilized, if not a quick buff with course sand paper and paint.
