    It's the pale greenish-colored one. Our inspectors approve and in the chart I linked to it is the only one of their transition or multi-purpose cements that is listed as UPC and NSF approved for DWV.

          The most secure method, especially underground, is to use a female adapter on one side and a male adapter on the other and thread them together.

            If you use a band in UPC country, it better be listed for the application. For example, 2" PVC to 2" ABS would require a Mission CP200 or equal. As for screwing a male adapter to a female adapter, female plastic adapters are risky because they can split if you over tighten them or use too much teflon tape..

              I heard in a CE class early last year that some company had created a glue that would, indeed, meld ABS and PVC, but that the glue hadn't been approved for use, yet.
