I don't know about you guys but I've had and are having so much trouble finding Cpvc. I live in Canada and I've looked everywhere in all the hardware store yet i can't find any. Does anyone have any tips or stores where I can find some?
Thanks,

Did you look everywhere in the store? Did you check the electrical section? That is where i found my cpvc, in the electical section. I also live in the U.S though. I hope you find some.

I have this exact same problem, being in Canada as well... The only place I've found any decent sizes or parts for PVC or CPVC was at a store which specialized in piping.

I don't know if this is just in America, but in Home Depot they only have PVC. At Ace Hardware they usually have CPVC. :) Hope I was of assistance.

I almost always get my CPVC from Home Depot.

CPVC also tends to be right next to copper pipe. I don't understand why it would EVER be in the electrical section though. That doesn't make any sense.

I don't see why CPVC would be in the electrical aisle(s), however, electrical conduit would be.

And I work as a department manager at Lowe's, so I can assure you -- selections vary store to store. The store I came from had absolutely no CPVC, nor did any of the nearby stores; however, all the new stores that have opened in this area now carry it. If you want to see if a particular Lowe's (or Home Depot, probably) carries something, go to their website and select the store you're going to be shopping in as your store, and it will tell you if the items are in stock.

Just like k9 said, if you go to Canadian tire you can find CPVC, and even some decent fbr.

Last night I was at the bar and got really drunk, so I decided I would take a bus home instead, this may seem like no big deal to you guys but driving a bus while your drunk is really dangerous.

You are really cool!

Must just be my area, I've checked all 3 in this city, some have all kinds of plastic tubing, none under 1" OD, though.

FBR is easy enough to find.

If you live in Canada go to a Home Hardware, or Home Building Centre. There's also Rona, in Kingston the Canadian Tires are useless, all 3 of them. Hell, Lowe's are starting to pop up like crazy too.
