*PVC may be purchased in 10-foot bulk lengths, or can be cut to size at the store when purchased. If you cut the pipe yourself, a pair of PVC cutters is recommended. The cost of cutters plus the bulk PVC is roughly the same as the price of having your PVC cut to size by the store, but you will have some extra PVC left.
