There is PVC and CPVC pipe.  They may react differently to light.
Double check which you are using as they are often confused, one for
the other.  It is marked on the outside of the pipe but the writting
may very well may disapear in the sun.  The CPVC is the common pipe
used for water pipes in houses.It is a light tan colour.  PVC is
usually the black pipe used for waste water in homes, but there is a
white PVC pipe. Also a grey used for electrical work to protect
electrical wires from weaather.  This  electrical pipe is often used
outside in all weather conditions and does not change colour or get
damaged by UV and does not become brittle.
