20' leaping arch using sleeve method

Hi all,

 

I'm planning on putting together two 20' arches each with 9 channels and was wondering about the sleeve method.  I saw that the original poster of the sleeve method used a 10' pvc.  Has anyone put together a 20' arch using the sleeve method and care to share your experience with it?  Should I get 3/4" pvc and 9 segments of 26" length 1" pvc?  Any thoughts?

 

Thanks,

 

Nelson

I have never done an arch, but I have a few comments.  20 foot using 3/4 inch PVC seems awfully flimsy to me.  You would very likely need to add guy wires to it.  Also, I rather suspect that 1 inch PVC for the sleeves will not be large enough.  As I recall, a 1 inch PVC pipe will not slip over a 3/4 inch PVC pipe at all even when it's straight.  Add the bend of the 3/4 inch and I would be surprised if you can get the sleeve over the 3/4 inch.  Plan on larger pipe for the sleeve.  Unless you get better information, you would want to test your pipe sizes before buying it.
