Answer: 
I bought a roll of food grade 403 steel foil for my project. I will be lining the inside of the fence posts to prevent BPA from leaching in. Just a thought.

For this usage of the product -it doesn't really matter if its PVC or LDPE, what we need to make sure of is that the production process used renders a food safe compliant product - this does not appear to be so for this item.
While rigid schedule pvc using for indoor plumbing is safe and is certified safe for Human Use - this pvc does not have such certification - you might get lucky and it is safe or you may be unlucky and get it made from the same process as DWC pvc which is not safe. Read Less

I was going to use 5 x 5 vinyl posts dug into the ground and then 4 x 4 post for the screen upright. Does the 4x4 fit easily into the 5x5?

Answer: 
Yes they would, but you would have almost an inch gap, of which you would have to shim on at least two sides to make it more stable. Or use something like 7/16 shims on all four sides of each post. Then depending on the height you might want a base cap to slide down the 4x4 to make it look better, and make a smooth transition.

Hello, The 5 X 5 post is not a suitable post sleeve. If installing a new vinyl fence we would like the wood removed. If you'd like to speak with one of tech support team members, please feel free to call us at: 1-877-279-4496

Answer: 
I recommend a fresh installation if you want any strength from the posts. These are 5x5, most standard posts are 4x4; these will slide over a 4x4 post but there will be some slop/wobble you would need to mitigate.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PVC Fence post Best bang for your buck. I will use this product again and recommend it to anyone with a fencing project August 2, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Vinyl fence Great product. Just what I needed... I will definitely buy more in the near future. July 12, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Just what I ordered . It's a fence post . Came a litle later than expected . June 7, 2016
Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Not just bad service, but NO service of this fencing! The supplier of this fence, changes design periodically and they don't keep old stock for replacement. So no replacements when high winds damage things. My gripes and total lack of service over the few years I've owned this fence; Replacement gate hinge & latch design changed. The hinge and latch are different and don't fit well with the original gate or how it was setup. Gate design changed so new hinges don't fit old gate well. Post design and width has been changed! Someone (probably me) left the gate unlatched and the wind tore hinges right off the post, leaving 2 big holes in the post. The old post is 4 5/16" and the new post is 5". That causes 2 problems; more than likely won't have room for a 11/16" wider post to replace. If you lose a post cap, you can't get a replacement. Replacement parts are not available. What were they thinking? April 27, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sturdy post Put up 43 of these with fence, put a pt4X4 in the gate posts July 16, 2015
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Met All My Expectations I used two of these as storage sleeves in an RV. One for a waste hose and one for a six foot folding ladder. They were perfect for my application. December 10, 2014
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sewer Hose Storage! Seriously - it's a PVC fencepost. Very solid - took me forever to saw through it by hand... because I turned it into an RV sewer hose carrier mounted to the back bumper of our 5th wheel :-) RV-specific hose carriers cost over $100; this cost me (plus 2 end caps) about $30. The 5" diameter easily accommodates the hose plus the bayonet ends. Most RV bumpers are designed to hold these hoses, but the inside of the bumper is rusty and rough and eventually causes worn spots and potential holes. Trust me - when you're dumping a blackwater tank - you do NOT want leaks!!! Due to its purpose in life, it's also not something you want to store inside the RV. The smooth PVC fencepost protects the all-important "Stinky Slinky". I drilled some air holes in the bottom to help it dry; and zip-tied it to the bumper. One end cap is glued on - the other is held in place with a screw eye so it can be removed. A short piece of cord connects the screw eye and cap to the carrier. December 17, 2013
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Great Product I am very happy with the product. It was easy to install. Well made and looks very attractive. April 16, 2013
