Seemed fine to me By Brian on 6/23/2016

Seems like good quality PVC pipe. I do see what some of the others are saying... it is scratched up a bit, but most likely how it comes from where BRS gets it. I doubt they are all individually wrapped when BRS gets them. The main thing is it's good quality pipe. I'd buy it again anytime.
As for the scratching ... I mean... if you are looking for it under good light and are within 1' or so... you will see it. Then again at average viewing distance say 2'+ you will never see it. So for me.. under my stand and in the fish room around the sump... no one will ever get that close I don't think. At 2'+ it looks perfect.
Scuffed, Scratched, and Ugly By Jarrod on 3/22/2016

I was very disappointed with this purchase. I ordered multiple sections of the 1" black pipe and every piece arrived scuffed and scratched over the complete length. I need to plumb my tank in the next couple of days or I would just throw it in the trash and order from someone else. If someone is spending the extra money to order colored pipe its because it needs to look good and presentable. I'm embarrassed to be using this but I need to get the project done. I will never order colored pipe from here again.
In contrast I ordered the 3/4" pipe I needed from Amazon because it was a good bit cheaper than BRS. Each piece arrived packaged in a separate plastic sleeve and was flawless on their appearance.
The only reason I gave it two stars instead of one is because it looks to the the same thickness and strength of regular schedule 40 pipe so it should function well.

I got my black PVC today and it arrived just as described. I was a little worried it wouldn't be good quality due to the color but I was very impressed with the quality. No more ugly white pipe with bar codes. Perfect look to match my black stand and red and black sump. Thanks BRS!
