    Please list also the special adhesives.

    I've heard of this Chlorofoam. I am pretty sure this is spelt wrong but all I know that it is said to make you faint if you breathe it in heavily.

    The correct spelling is Chloroform on its own it was commonly used to "knock people out" (quite literally, breathe too much of it and out you go)

    It is however used to make pvc, but that is an industrial process. what exactly are you trying to make? (i read you said water feature, but what)

    Most plastics are suitable for water features. but like all plastics they are molded into shape.

    You should try looking at boat builders and the plastics they use. Most are uv and stain resistant.
