pvc down spout to build a nft system

i am new to hydroponics and would like to make my own system:

i found pvc rain gutter down spout's that are 10' long that i would like to try to make a nft system useing 2" net pots.

The system works!!!
I am currently in a business partnership growing (at the moment) about 8,000 Hydroponic lettuces. we had a few teathing problems regarding the water flow tending to go to one side of the 100*50mm downpipe but resolved that with paper towel or something similar below each plant. Having said this you shouldnt have any worries with a small system like you mentioned!!
Have fun - it can be really rewarding
