Alright, I was prowling my local lowes, and I came across a kind of sprinkler hose, it's the same diameter, wall thickness and weight as CPVC, but it's black, and comes if 2' sections. It's a tiny bit cheaper than CPVC ($0.50 for a 2' section) Has anyone else tried it?

no, it isn't sch80 pvc, that was on another aisle, and the PEX tubing was way down the aisle, it was with the sprinklers, and wasn't very flexible (like I've found PEX tubing to be) I'll check lowes' website to see what it is.

Is it threaded on both ends... If so I know what your talking about. Fits 19/16 k&s brass very nicely!

In my experience they frequently stock sch80 in two places, typical fittings and pipe with the other PVC and threaded risers in various lengths from an inch or so to about 3' right next to the sprinkler valves. At my Lowes the risers are a different brand (and even color) than the other sch80, but they're the same stuff.

But I thought sch80 PVC was grey, not black, and came only in the same sizes as sch40 PVC.

I've seen it in gray and black, and the OD is the same as sch40 while the ID is considerably different.

Okey I've solved the mystery;
(and I hate ending up double posting whenever something relevent happends with one of my topics.)

I figured out what it is, it's rainbird E-Z pipe, it's a little stiffer than pex tubing and it is not threaded. Its really light, and easy to work with.

it depends, I mean it's easy to deform the material, so well, it depends, but, I've found it is about as tight as cpvc.

I put it on my SM3K, and along with two simple mods, look at how it's doing.

and its high point is how light and flexible it is, so if CPVC doesn't quite fit, you can force this stuff to do so.
