First time poster here with a few questions:

1. Can one use PVC/ABS to make a wash tower and if so what schedule of PVC/ABS is being used.
2. What type of pump is recommended to move BD through the towers?Max recommended pressure?
3. What is the recommended screen type and size to contain the drywash medium in the tower?

Thanks for addressing my questions...peace

It can be done but you may want to consider gravity feed so you don't blow out the PVC from too much pressure. Sch40 will work, but try to get Sch80 from a plumbing supply. If I'm not mistaken, Houston Biodiesel has plans you can buy.
