I have inherited an old Insta-slalom (I think) course. It needs some new PVC but it appears the stuff at Menards and Home Depot are all 1/8 inch wall, but in order for the 1-1/4 pipe to telescope inside the 1-1/2 inch pipe they need to be 1/16 inch walls. If anyone knows a source - besides Insta-slalom themselves, please let me know. TIA - DAVE

Sorry, I don't think you will ever get it to work right. However, if you ship it down to me in Tampa, I will ensure that it is repaired properly and used often; even in the winter.

Ya know I would - but I think it might dissolve in warm water ....

When you're looking for pipe thickness you need to look for schedual 20, 40 or, 80. Go to a plumbing supply store and they should have what you need. Likely it will be sched 20 with that wall thickness.
