PVC has a velocity factor of about 96% so some retuning may be required.  PVC is not very UV tolerant so a thin layer of nonmetallic paint should be applied.  I've used Rustoleum 2X paint and primer with success.   An alternative to PVC is fiberglass tubing available in 94" sections at Max Gain Systems in interlocking sizes.  Fiberglass also needs to be painted.  Hope this helps.
