re: Tank safe paint


I asked a couple years ago about ways to color PVC pipe.  I received several 
suggestions about how to paint the pipe.  What I actually wanted was a way to 
dye the pipe, but it seems that noone had anything to say about dye.

One possibility I considered was adding pigment to the purple primer used 
with PVC cement.  The primer is a pretty effective dye.  It seems like 
starting with the purple-colored primer it would be possible to color it to 
black or grey, but other colors might be difficult.  If you could find the 
uncolored base for the primer then that might be tinted to other colors.

I ended up just using grey PVC pipe.  I would *still* rather have the pipe 
dyed green or black.
