does anyone know if i can plumb the air supply from the hobbyair unit in PVC - or some other rigid pipe?

what i would like to do - if possible -

is place the hobbyair unit in my basement (per a comment made by another member).

then run PVC from the hobbyair unit - through the box header in to my attached garage and around the garage in to the paint booth. at the end of the PVC pipe run - i would put one of the hobbyair quick connectors.

the idea being that when i wanted to use the unit - i would just walk in to the paint booth and connect my hose to the PVC drop - which would be located right next to the drop i have for my hose that will connect to my paint gun.

my hope is that this arrangement will make it easier to manage both hoses (the air supply for the gun and the air supply from the hobbyair) while i paint.

thank you for any input,
