Which one would work better for me: PVC or Aluminum?

  1. May 8, 2009 #1
    Trying to pick a product for my project and would like to get some opinions from the knowledgeable people in the forum.

    let's say I am using 2 pipes, one made from PVC and the other from Aluminum to lift an object of x kilos. Both pipes are of the same lenght, size, and thickness. Which pipe would be a better choice as far as durability, strength, weight, cost. etc.

    Thanks for your input.

    Given the lack of details provided, my unqualified answer is, aluminum.
