I want to buy some clear acylic pipe, but I can't find any. Can you help?
The reason you can't find clear acrylic pipe is that it does not exist nor it is made. The word "pipe" has specific meaning. "Pipe" is an engineered product. It's designed for pressure and to fit pvc fittings via an interference solvent weld. Tube or Tubing is different. Acyrlic tubing is none of these things. The bonding is a surface bond using an adhesive. It might seem the same thing to laypersons, but in fact it's totally different.
But I see a picture on your site with acyrlic tube inserted into a pvc fitting!
That's correct you do. There are a FEW cases were it just so happens that the dimensions of acrylic tubes cross over to PVC pipe (3" and 4" Sch 40 and there is one other but we'll leave that out for now since it's got it's own complications.) We show that it CAN be done, but we have disclaimers on the website. It can't be used for plumbing, it has no pressure rating and you have to use special glue.
Also see our PVC Pipe, Tube, Tubing and Hose infographic for more info on the subject. (Highly recommended.)
Application Guidelines: Flexible PVC Pipe should not be used in conditions of constant pressure exceeding the working pressure specifications. There should always be a flow through the pipe. Constant "dead head" pressure will balloon the pipe and eventually it will fail. Please keep this information in mind when selecting flexible PVC pipe for a project.
