Where can I get PVC?

Lucie - Christina F. RepurposedBetsyKmdreamer


Hello, Ma'am. I am considering getting into making and selling pvc projects. I love everything about it, but can't find much concerning suppliers. Locally finding pvc over 4" is something that I cannot find. I really love working with the illuminaries, but am wondering if it is cost effective considering the prices that I am finding online. Any advice?

    Hello Susan,

    Look for PVC suppliers or try eBay or secondhand /yard sales. It is hard to make money at this time in general..............But you never know unless you try!

    Hi Susan,

    Here is a link to a commercial supplier with 1/2"- 24" nominal sizes. The area where you live is missing so I cannot be sure if this link would be helpful. You could also try Amazon:

    I would look into the products at the Home Depot and online try Alibaba.

    You could try online shopping. Shipping maybe an issue if large pieces but check out Amazon too.

    Susan...I would suggest salvage stores in your area. Good luck

  • Try your local plumbing supply houses, why pay exorbitant shipping fees? Flip through the yellow pages or just Google to find out what is in your area. Where I live, even the big box home improvement centers carry pvc in a plethora of sizes. Or check independent hardware stores too - leave no stone unturned!

    I would first think about what you want to make then look into the types of plastic available for that project. There is acrylic, polycarbonate, and others in addition to PVC.

    Home Depot has several types of sheet plastic. Check the yellow pages for ‘plastic suppliers’. There should be some in your area.

    I don’t quite understand when you say you can’t find anything over 4 inches. Do you mean 4 inches thick (that’s a thick block) or 4 inches long (Many larger hardware stores have that.

    If you are on neighborhood pages, create a post on how you would like any unused PVC pieces. A lot of times, people can get free supplies or cheaper stuff, just by asking on the free social media pages.

    Hi Susan: Check with Home Depot or Lowes. Most home improvement centres sell it in the plumbing department. Good luck

  • Home Depot or any hardware store.
