Does it hurt to use PVC pipe to feed my gurdies? Any opinions would help.

Not quite sure what you mean?
If you are talking about making davits out of PVC you would be better off with metal.

I would say that if you used PVC pipe as part of the supply-side plumbing, it will indeed hurt. Especially when a shard of Schedule 40 hits you at high velocity.
