I have access to free 3/4 inch CPVC pipe and fittings for my shed tank I am building. My ? is, is there any issue using it instead of regular PVC? My pump is 1200 GPH but can not figure out how to convert it to PSI to make sure the CPVC is ok. Any thoughts would be great, Thanks.

Cpvc can handle higher temp's than pvc.  Thats about the only difference.

It would work perfectly. The primary difference between the two is cpvc can handle higher temperatures.

Kind of an old topic, but another difference worth noting is that PVC has better UV resistance.  If CPVC is; used outdoors I recommend painting it.
