Our local Ferguson's carries abs and pvc. If I have to I will use an abs fitting with pvc with transition glue. If its not visible.


      Something the IPC will not allow us to do as the glue is just that and does not complete a solvent weld.

        I'm a bigger fan of ABS. Not a fan of having to prime pipe if I don't need to.

        PVC is also very unenvironmentally friendly as far as what it takes to produce it.

        I'd rather use solid core ABS than PVC if I had to for instances where you're running underground under a driveway for example.

        The (high end) houses I tend to pipe often have ABS underground, Cast Iron for above ground drainge so you can't hear the drainage in the wall when someone flushes the toilet, and ABS for the venting.

          Same here. We use a lot of mission couplings (CP33 and CP200).

            Not recommended. There are warnings on the can to avoid skin contact. That would be on healthy skin. I'm sure it would be even more deleterious on an open wound.
            I recommend rusty sheet metal screws and band iron to close the wound first.

              In Minnesota it's PVC only, ABS is not allowed. Years ago I was licensed in California and only used ABS so I have seen the good and the bad of both.
              I remember laying out ABS in the sun only to come back and have the pipe bent into a perfect "C" shape, never seen PVC do that.
              I was told when a house burns ABS is extremely toxic compared to PVC, don't know if it's true but who knows.
              I don't mind the primer, it's part of the job. I've learned to like PVC, I think it looks better too. Maybe because now it's almost all basements and it has to look good. Back in good old Kalifornia it was mostly crawl jobs, saw some very ugly saging installs.

                  I built in Mass. 1970s heard the same about ABS and toxic smoke .

                  I never saw ABS there then . I'm sure It's KING now.
                  I can build anything You want , if you draw a picture of it , on the back of a big enough check .

                      No one (in the Bay Area) stocks the the ground stakes. I have to order them from Sioux Chief. When I do, I usually order 4-5 boxes at a time. You can order them without the steel rebar rod. Cut your own #3 bar to any length you choose.
