pvc storage

Hi everyone,

How do you guys store the PVC pipes? I am looking for a neat/clean way to keep them out of the way and stored. Right now I am using a big trash can but I do not like it!

Thank you,
James

Re: pvc storage

I have ten or fifteen PVC and Body bars in my 5 by 15 space, and I made a shelf and it looks great.

Re: pvc storage

How long have you been open?

If that's you biggest concern about looking sloppy, God bless you.

We've got 30+ PVC pipes in a garbage can.

Re: pvc storage

I store them horizontally on 2 of these hooks:

The bottom squarish looking ones are mounted above my gun rack. I think it holds about 15 pvc's

Re: pvc storage

I have 2 buckets. Screw one to the wall on the ground. Cut the bottom out of the other and screw it up higher. Looks good and holds 40+ pipes

not the biggest. I also wish I had more hot, long socks wearing, booty shorts flaunting CF girls as a member. This is very crucial to business... maybe even more than the PVC thing

This is smart. We have a small plastic bin that was filled with cat food originally haha!
