I think the black works better than the white and certainly don't like
the look of the orange sewer pipe.

Yes I've been been making rope shutes of this material since the early
70s, when I worked in the development department of one of the early
manufacturers of such pipe. It works extremely well.


Leeds, Kent, where the back four ropes were infamously badly behaved,
was probably one of the first towers to get shutes made of PVC drain


What specifically do you want to know?

	Do any members have experience of constructing rope chutes using
110mm diameter plastic drainage pipes rather than the usual timber? 
	Many thanks,
