Look What You Can Build With PVC
“We started with snap clamps to hold plastic and other fabrics to pvc pipes and added a few fixtures in 2008,” says Josh Ramey, Circo Innovations. “Today we have 300 different fitting sizes and styles. They range from 1/2 to 2-in. in dia. and are available with 3-way, 4-way and even 5-way fittings.”
Circo sells a variety of pvc pipe types, including UV resistant and furniture quality, as well as fittings of all types. Unique fittings include aluminum snap-on hinges, caster wheel caps and caster wheels, arches and adjustable joints in both 3-way and 4-way styles.
The company even sells a pvc pipe bender. The “Hot Snake Bender” comes in 36-in. ($302.48), 72-in. ($432.90) and 108-in. lengths ($555.00). Inserted into a pipe, the bender will warm pipes from 1/2-in. to 1 1/4-in. dia. so they can be bent to whatever shape needed.
Chicken coop kits in several sizes ready to assemble are available, as well as free plans to make your own.
The company only sells fittings by the box (suggested retail price) or case (wholesale price). Individual orders are referred to retailers including Amazon, Johnny’s Selected Seeds, Lee Valley Tools and others.
“Our fittings are indispensible when building a structure with pvc pipe,” says Ramey. “The ingenuity is just incredible when people have the tools to be creative.”
