    Thanks for the input everyone!

    No other markings on the pipe or fittings in the kit, just the "ABS" ones like the picture.

  2. Pipe says ABS, everything else says it's PVC.

    Hello!

    I have a couple of questions and I hope I won't come across as too dense.

    You mentioned a check valve. This wouldn't happen to be a Conbraco Dual Check? If it is, then any vibrating or "buzzing" sound is certainly from that valve. The springs inside it get weak and the...

    Joe, I'm in Canada as well and things are slightly different north of the border! We use the all plastic flange all the time so don't worry about it.

    What I would do is cut the 3" pipe a little...

    I'm not sure what season you're getting where you live, but if it's some of the older seasons just remember this:

    I think the best thing for you to do is hold YOURSELF accountable. Caveat emptor.

    Home inspectors in Canada are not required to be certified in anything. Any idiot (and I would suggest most fall into this category, at least where I live) can be a home inspector.
