PVC or not 6 years 1 month ago #54245

Can anyone tell me if this is PVC?  What areas is PVC allowed and not allowed in a house?

In Chicago and surround burbs, PVC in only allowed on DWV.  It can not be used on supply. It can't even be used off a TPR valve.  Other parts of Illinois are different.  Where I inspect, you were better call it out for evaluation, repair, and correction/replacement since its never been allowed in my market for supply.

PVC is allowed and used around here for waste drain only. Those look like vent fittings, which shouldn't be used for waste. (The "T"'s  and 90's on vent piping do not have the directional cavities)

PVC cannot be used on TPR valves. It will not withstand the pressure or temperature. CPVC is acceptable, but I always suggest copper.

There is nothing sweeter than the smell of fresh cut grass on a baseball infield, the click of a wooden bat and the taste of a hot dog at a warm sunny daytime double-header.
