I was considering getting SCH 80 PVC pipe and valves but the cost is so high. Can I use krylon spray paint for this? I don't know if it will stick to the plastic. I am assuming I can pull the red valves off of the ball valves before painting. Thanks in advance.

Yes you can but it will run and look uneven. The best way is to use some pvc primer paint. I heard.
