How can a PVC pipe help you survive?

 There's gold bullion in your fireproof safe, a gas mask under your bed, and you've mapped an escape route that will take you far from urban dangers to a rural oasis where you plan to live sustainably until further notice.

If so, PVC pipes should figure into your survival plan. These rigid, inexpensive polyvinyl chloride (PVC) pipes represent a trifecta of durability. They are waterproof, flexible and fire-resistant -- and you can buy a supply at your neighborhood hardware store.

Polyvinyl chloride (PVC) was first discovered by a German scientist in 1835, but it took decades to figure out practical applications beyond the laboratory for this strong, durable material. In the 1930s, PVC pipe was being manufactured and installed for water distribution in Germany. However, it wasn't until World War II that the use of PVC pipes became more prevalent.
