Exposed PVC conduit

How long can I expect gray schedule 40 PVC conduit to last when installed in a location exposed to direct sunlight? We have quite a bit of sun here in central Texas. The conduit has "sunlight resistant" stamped on it. How much difference would it make if the conduit was painted with latex house paint?

Re: Exposed PVC conduit

I agree,PVC will last a long time in the sun.If you don't paint it,it will fade and oxidize but still do the job.I have seen it painted to match the house before,but don't know how well the paint weathered over the years.
