    Cost of PVC parst

    I'm going to try doing some plumbing (nothing big but enough to learn the basics) using PVC. I bought my supplies yesterday but was surprised at the cost. I would be interested in whether this seems reasonable to folks (everything is 3/4"):

    10' pipe: $ 7.90
    16 connectors of various types: 17.97
    2 .5/.75 adapters: 10.00
    2 unions: 20.00
    bulkhead unit: 35.00 (originall $46 but I got a discount)
    glue/primer/teflon tape: 16.00
    misc 90degree connectort: 6.15

    Total (before tax): $ 113.

    I'll be able to re-use the tape/glue so the 'real' cost may be closer to $100. Still seems like a lot just to have two lines running from my tank to a small 'fuge.
