Given the 2 options, if you need to run external conduit, would you choose steel anyday over PVC ?
Steel has always been Code and King out here in NYC. Current code afaik allows PVC for structures 3 stories and less.
Love to hear the pros/cons.
Pro's I suppose is that it's a solvent weld, and you can heat it up and *bend* the radius very easily.
I wouldn't say it looks cheap, but after seeing steel pipe for so long, when I do see it + the lettermarking on the plastic, it does sorta look cheap.
