    Colliers gets cheaper if you get 20+ or 30+ meters. 30+ is $4.53 per meter. Freight is way way way better than Esdan for me. I paid $102 in freight for a roll last year but after searching for so long it was the only stuff I could find. $27.60 for freight according to the online quote from colliers.

    Might just have to give them a call.
    Being far north WA makes “Picking ion directly” impossible...

    It’s funny cause it’s cheaper to buy 30m than 20m due to the pricing discount for 30 plus metres

    Flip! You say that now ... I just paid $95 for a box 63x63x94cm weighing 12Kgs....

    Haha, look I appreciate the offer - who do you go thru? I will be getting quite a few bits (next will be a roll of airseeder hose for our Arches) and that theres the by-monthly grain order (for Home-brews). I always think that a dollar is better in my pocket than someone else!

    Perhaps I should PM you...

    Hi,
    how did you go with the hose? Air Seeder LDPE Hose 32mm x 38mm POLYETHYLENE tube grain fertilizer seeds clear. This is from the link from Simey.
    I went to their website and they do not have this - they have one with a spiral colour going through it.
    Did the LDPE AIRSEEDER HOSE 32MMWHITE U.V RESISTANT TUBE 32MMX38MM from collier and miller work out? I noticed that after 20m the price coems down to around $6.46/m without freight. I'm in NSW
    Is the diffused a better look? I will use strips this year with the thought of maybe square pixels next year.

    Hi all,
    I got my air seeder hose 38mm diameter. Does anyone know where I can get conduit for this size? What about the t junction to make feet?

    Maybe interesting for those who do not have access to air seeder hose, or HDPE tubing, or PEX tubing;
    This weekend I have been experimenting with 32mm white PP/PE pipes intended for indoor sewage. These are rigid pipes, but when filled with sand, and after applying heat by a heat gun or roofing/weed burner, it is possible to bend these without too much problems. I was a bit hesitant about the pipes being translucent enough, but they do great.
    For me, it served mostly as a proof of concept. As we are deep in November already, I decided not to add arches to my display this year, and take some time in 2019 to properly work things out. By that time, I'll provide some pictures/vids as well.

    Interesting @Aart Wessels

    Do you have a product code etc? i have been looking for straight pipe... and yours sounds exactly what i am after. If i can give details to a plumbing wholesaler, they may be able to source some.

    cheers

    Well, it's products on sale here in Europe. I've done a quick search in Australia, but can't find them there.
    If you are looking for straight pipe, you could do the same thing I described, just reversed. Fill the tube with sand, heat it, and pull it straight.
    This is the site for one of the local manufacturers, for 4 meters of white pipe in 32mm diameter : http://makushop.martensgroep.eu/win...]=9665&cHash=6f28d7d61a43970c65ba6e3d1560b72d
    It's generally available in DIY stores here.
