PVC is fine as far as its pressure rating. The part that can cause serious injury is that it is fairly brittle. If something falls on it and breaks it, you can have lots of pieces of sharp plastic flying all over your garage. Not a real good idea. There are some systems out now that use polyethelene piping that remains flexible and won't shatter. The one I saw used push together fittings so you could rearrange the system or take it with you if you moved.
