Well, first attempt with PVC was a failure, but not ruling out PVC as the construction material...yet.

The problem was trying to build all of it with PVC joints, bends, etc. Since the pipe only fits into fittings 3/4", the cement and bond is not strong enough to handle the stresses. Next attempt will be with solid pieces, drilled and bolted together with stainless hardware.
