All PVC pipes and fittings are rated by a number. Most common are schedule 20, 40, and 80. "Schedule" indicates the pipe thickness. The higher the number, the stronger the pipe is. Schedule 80 fittings are used for applications that, due to harsh elements or pressure, require stronger piping. Schedule 80 is rated at 200 psi (Pounds per Square Inch) at 73 degrees Fahrenheit. Schedule 80 can be a bit more costly than the 40, but it is made with more material. It is also important to note that safety should be considered when choosing which schedule pipe to use.
Knowing the building codes for your area is very important. If you know that the job in which you are doing requires schedule 80 PVC fittings, you should NEVER use schedule 40. This could be dangerous and can cause damage to your house, business, appliances or even yourself. If you use a lower schedule pipe than what is needed, it can shatter into pieces which create projectiles that can be dangerous.
The Schedule 80 pipes are thicker and heavier than the lower schedule pipes but have the same outside diameter. As the schedule increases, the internal diameter decreases. The fittings work well with any schedule, but due to safety, you should always use the same schedule fittings.
To implement an efficient system of pipes, you will want to use each schedule 80 PVC fitting for its intended purpose.
