    Bought some on weekend from local hardware 4 x 6m at $2.50 per lm. like your prices much better (if that's a per length price)
    Cheers Boof63

    To put it in perspective, you must look at the different conduits. Water pipe is expensive, waste pipe is a little cheaper and electrical conduit is the cheapest.
    So make sure when you are looking for xmas stuff, go for the electrical conduit. we only need it to hold lights, not 100psi of water. :laugh:

    agreed, i was refering to the 2.50 p/m being over the top in comparison to bunnings , as its double bunnings price even. most wholesalers will do around the 2.50 per 4 m length if you ask the right way

    I'd say you purchase pressure pipe Boof63 as Electrical conduit is 4 mtr in length.
    Pressure pipe is 6 mtrs and price is dependent on its class - pressure rating.

    I just did a trial price run on the Sebl Supplies link. They being based in Vic, charge me $ 10 to get my order of 100 conduit pipes to Queensland and then they give me a $ 12.95 discount because the order is over $ 200

    My local electrical supplier (30 km away) charges close to the Bunnings Price. This now gives me something to barter them with

    Yes mine is/was pressure pipe , was looking for 25mm and 6m so as to cut in half. Thought i might have been saving money/time/wastage- got that wrong.

    Cheers Boof63

    I had a sparky come to last years display - he thought I was a sparky due to all the conduit I used.
    I told him my occupation and he was very impressed considering I am not a sparky.
    Told him I made the mistake of using 20mm conduit for my driveway arches and that I should have used 25.
    He said he had tons of it at home and would donate it to us as we do charity fund raising.
    I guess he forgot about it as we are still waiting. Oh well, lets get on with more blinky things.

    Bought some electrical conduit 20mm x 4m , from same hardware as 25mm pvc. Cost for 20mm elec was $4.00 per length.
    Bit better deal. Tried stratco and lad there quoted $10 x 4m length - so left that alone.
    Cheers and thanks for heads up everyone
