Flexible pipe for plumbing
 
Hello-
I'm nearing the end of my remodel of our kitchen and now I'm just hooking up the plumbing. I'm having some difficulty getting everything to line up well and I have a leak with two junctions. Instead of ripping everything apart again and cutting and modifying, does anyone have any feedback about flexible PCV piping on kitchen plumbing fater the downspout into the main drain? This would save me alot of time and headache to use the flexible stuff. Any feedback will help.

Thanks!

I have used both the flexible down tubes and the rubber connections (with hose clamps) where the trap arm goes into the wall. Never had a problem with either one. I prefer not to use them, but on a few jobs I have done where I was just installing new sink and not reworking plumbing, they have worked fine.

Good to know...I am just worried about food and other particulate matter getting caught and hardening in those little grovves where the tubing flexes.
