  10. Still OK to use iron pipe for venting?

    Plumbing
    I'm going to be running a vent pipe from a basement bathroom up to the roof. I'd like to use iron pipe for the venting so as to avoid the possibility of somebody putting a nail or drywall screw into the pipe and allowing sewer gas to escape into the house. Is iron pipe still allowed for...
