Can lights and PVC drain pipe

1590 Views 6 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  silversport
Installing IC rated new construction cans in basement and I want to use a joist bay that has a PVC drain pipe running in it. How close can the housing be to PVC. Can they touch?

There were two hidden (covered by drywall) junction boxes in my basement ceiling!

One would think that if it can be in contact with insulation that it could be in contact with PVC. I would at least want a little separation - say half inch or more. Like md said, read the fine print in the instructions.
