Type of pipe for main stack to septic tank


Hi everyone,

We are replacing the pipe that leads from our main stack to our septic tank.

It's an old house, and the main stack is currently cast iron, and the pipe that connects the main stack to the septic tank is leaking and we've dug up the ground and are ready to replace the pipe.

I've heard that the white PVC is for pressure and the black ABS is for drainage and venting.

I just want to clarify that the black ABS pipe is the proper type of pipe to use that will go from the main stack to our septic tank.

Thanks for any help anyone can give me.

You can use either ABS or Schedule 40 PVC
