    I need to put netting over my run. How hard is it to use PVC? What size is the best to use? Does it bend easily? How do you attach the netting to it? My run is about 16 X 25.

    Do you need to do anything special to the pipe to bend it? My run is 16feet across.

    Smaller diameter PVC pipe is flexible.

    You can also heat it and form bends using a torch or heat gun. It takes
    a little practice at first but isn't all that hard. If you have any electrician
    or plumber friends ask them to show you how.
