Default What is the white pipe bordering the nitro pit?

All I know it it looks like white flexable pipe. Who makes it and where to get it.

Default pipe

It is just 4in x 10ft PVC pipe I think you can get it at home depot. It is not flexable just alot of man hours to make it look that good

Try Home Depot or Lowes. The black pipe runs about $45 per 100 ft.

I realize that but like you said it's hard to find other colors.

Unless they have changed since I was there last Nitro pipe uses a lot of hard white pvc pipe. The flexible white pipe is more from the oil industry than the plumbing industry. The ball fence stuff is just too expensive the last time I looked at it.

I would love to look at per foot pricing of fiber optic ducting, its kinder to a car than PVC as it gives a bit, though it may be cost prohibitive.

It is White Flexible "Leech Line". It works great, very forgiving and re-usable. It is NOT hard PVC!

I spent a hour pulling the pipe for the new track and I could have swore it was hard PVC the same thing we use at ET and SRS but what do i know. I have never seen Leech Line please post a picture. I thought a leech line was just the line that goes from your septic tank to your plumbing and that was THICK BLACK PVC able to withstand being under ground.
