    Does anyone here know where I can get white 50mm plasitc pushfit pipe and fittings such as t-piece and endstop.

    I need 45mm inside diameter if possible and it has to be cheap too! (not using for pumbing but an outside project that needs to be waterproof but accessible for further work).

    It will be mainly to keep electronics and sensors dry and dust free whilst being suitable for radio waves to enter and leave (Black or grey pipe is not suitable as the colouring usually contains powdered metal).

    Have checked screwfix, Plumbase,wickes,Toolstation and no luck so far (even amazon and ebay).

    Thanks.

    @Madrab - Thanks for the link - but they only do it in grey or black, no white. That's the problem everywhere in UK it seems.

    Apols @skywatch99, given it was white in the pics, I assumed they would have them.

    Can you not just use white solvent weld fittings as they're usually pretty tight and then just use some silicone to make the joints watertight?

    I will need to take it apart for repairs/upgrades/reprogramming, so a permanent seal is no good - might also need to replace batteries as well. So push fit is really what I need. I know it's available in Scandinavia and Europe, just not here it seems, I don't know why that is....

    Solvent weld fittings that aren't glued but with a little silicone outside at the joins will seal it to be waterproof but still allow it to be pulled apart

    Push fit is not a very good method for connecting waste pipe, the seals degrade over time and they tend to start moving and then no longer seal. not good in inaccessible places They're also no good when it comes to rodding/clearing out as it's too easy to push the fittings apart.

    How about solvent weld a rodding eye fixture, then you can just unscrew the rodding eyelet to get at your widget.

    White solvent wells pipe sealed with white self amalgam tape, had to do this many years back for electronics as we were on site and they just wanted it accessible later on and some kind of sensor inside and didn’t want to wait
