Big pipe/tube.....and I mean big!

Post by york33 »

Afternoon all, anyone happen to know where to get hold of really big tubes/pipes? By big I mean big enough for kiddies to crawl through, plastic. Cheap is good too....

Was hoping to find a cheap source for a tunnel in a work in progress adventure playground in the garden?

cheers

you can get flexible-ish twin wall drainage pipe from a builder's merchant, I looked to get some for a play area I was making but I could only get it in 4m (or more) lengths and it was too expensive for my project. Looked great though and if you could find a building site where they had some left over you could probably get it for a song.

Ah cool, cheers for that, easy now I now what to call it, I wasn't getting anywhere desirable when Googling big pipes! Plastic is good for this bit of it as it'll be sat on the ground.

I seem to be getting carried away with this design, and I'm only on phase one, the castle and tunnel! Going to be making a big train out of ply in phase two!
