    The grey are $$$$$$
    Wikkies pompe used to have black. But sadly they closed down. They had a shop next to Dorry Pets. Maybe their other branches are still open.

    Yes, at our builders in PE at the DIY Plumbing section....apparently the guy said they stock it, as the older houses use to use grey piping for plumbing...I got 45mm, but they def also had the 25mm....not sure about 50mm....if i go past there again I can check...
