Small Schedule PVC Pipe & Fittings

Hi all,

This is not necessarily a plumbing questions, per se, but it does involve plumbing supplies. I'm looking for information on small schedule PVC, or similar, pipe & fittings (i.e. Schedule 5, 10...etc.).

I'm working on a DIY project for a flyrod case for backpacking and found that one made of regular schedule 40 PVC works great. However, it is a bit overkill & heavy for backpacking... So, I'm looking for a smaller wall thickness (smaller schedule) pipe to shave some weight.

Does anyone know of a good source for small schedule pipe? The local hardware stores & a search of the Google machine didn't turn up much.

Thanks for the help!

Schedule is the thinnest wall I aware of. Try a local plumbing supply house for the best variety.
