Irrigation pipe "super blue" needed?
Hello there. With spring here, we are doing some work around the yard and noticed our irrigation pipe needs some repair. Does anyone have about 10' of "Super Blue" by irritrol they would like to sell us ($9 or $10 for a 20' length)? If not, I found it on the internet, but we certainly don't need 100' coil. Anyone else have a need of some that we could split the cost up? I can split it up to 20' segments ($9 each); must be picked up in SoWal at our place, and may take a little while to arrive. If your irrigation coil has a blue stripe, this is the replacement pipe you'd need. The couplings can be found at Home Depot, but not the pipe. If interested in either selling us a length or buying a length if we need to order, please PM me. Thanks! Here are the specs:

Re: Irrigation pipe "super blue" needed?
A 100 foot coil is only $35. If you have to have the same pipe, you might check with a local irrigation company and see if they will sell you a short bit of it. There are most likely other brands that are compatible as pipe sizes are standardized. Cut a short piece and take it to the hardware store or home depot and check which fittings fit the pipe. Home Depot and Lowes will usually sell smaller quantities of pipe.Problems cannot be solved by the level of awareness that created them.
