Can you use grey SCH40 electrical conduit for a drain on an aquarium?  It says SCH 40 right on it and Im not using it for return just drain

 

For some reason the white Charlotte SCH40 pipe will not fit the fittings on my shadow overflow.  HD sells JM Eagle white SCH 40 that fits for some reason, its just a touch smaller.

Any thoughts on using this pipe for drain?

 

  I'm going to Lowe's and Home Depot this weekend to pick up plumbing and lumber to get the new build started

Nothing seems to preclude its use. The size and material is consistent with standard PVC used for plumbing. For drain use it should be fine.

I have a shadow overflow and its really tight you really have to make sure your giving it a good large champer and smooth it out, light champer wont work on these in my experience.
