pvc? Cpvc? SCH 40???


The old drains I'm tearing out and replacing are a combination of all different pipes. What is code as pertaining to drainpipes? I see black 1" sch40 for the venting, attached to pvc drain lines etc. Some were not even glued, just stuck in place! (with wrong sizes, no less, that evidently did not work properly without the INNER TUBE pieces they had stuck in them....lol)

Someone tried to use black plastic ABS pipe with white plastic PVC pipe.
Each has a separate "glue" made to chemically "weld" its fittings and pipe together, and there also is a special "glue" that can be used to fuse the two different types together...IF they fit due to pipe thickness.
Either and both can be used for residential drain/waste/vent systems.
Good luck!

Good.... I thought so... I have a bunch of pvc, so I'll use that for the venting as well.

Thanks
