      My wife bought me a new air compressor and tank for my birthday. I want to run some air lines in my shop and out to the driveway to fill tires or use impact tools. Do you think 1/2 inch would be large enough for the air demand, or should I go with 3/4″?
      I going to use PVC, should I use Sch 40 or would (I think it’s) Sch 80? be better? The guy at Lowe’s said Sch 80? had thicker walls and would be better.
      I wanted some second opinions before I go azhead with this project. Thanks in advance… George

      Plastic is not made for air lines.I talked to a manufacturer of plastic pipe and was told never to run plastic pipe for air lines.Good luck.
