PVC pipes

Ok.. I know this has been asked before, but I am drawing a complete blank...

I am going to build a whole new cave/tunnel structure out of PVC pipes. I can't have the slate stacked the way I do any more with the loaches getting as large as they are (they have taken to moving pieces around on a whim).

I am going to build my tunnels and arrange the slate around them (siliconed in place). The pipes will then be burried under pea gravel and fine gravel.

My question is.. What kind of PVC (or other pipe) should I be looking at for aquarium use? I will not be using any glue or adhesive for the pipes, just fittings pressed into place...
