Another vote for not grounding PVC. I can often feel the static on the cone of my plastic cyclone, but rarely even get a shock from ant part of my system.

I was thinking about it the other day, and I do have a basement shop, so the relative humidity is rather high (usually around 60%) so that might help explain it. If your shop is in an are with very low humidity, you may have more issues with shocks. In that case, I would go with metal ducts work. Trying to effectively ground an insulator is a difficult task.
