    Looks like a nice washing machine standpipe... I like the PVC ABS connection too... I bet they used that all purpose cement that works on either PVC or, ABS. LOL

    I believe the multi purpose glue is against the IRC code? How about it Jar546?

    Notice the word "Or" instead of "And" If allowed in the juristiction a banded coupling or, ABS/PVC Transition Cement is needed on this connection... Tell you the truth it looks like white caulk was used!

    The cement used must be rated for the application in which it is used.

    Example:

    ABS plastic. Cement must conform to: ASTM D 2235 or CSA B181.1

    PVC cement must conform to: ASTM D 2564, CSA B137.3 or CSA B181.2

    Coextruded Composiet ABS cement to: ASTM D 2235 or CSA B181.1

    As you can see, there are no matches between ABS and PVC

    Now, if you can find a solvent cement that conforms to both then you are OK. Let us know if you find any, it just may exist.

    Looks like you found it. Not so hard, was it?

    Now to get the code official to approve. (hint, use documentation)

    That is the so funny. Like somebody else said drain cleaning is a snap. Take out the laundry pipe and off you go.
    I'm just starting to work with an old friend of mine to bring solar electric and hot water systems, wind turbines, Flex Fuel Boilers, batteries, hydroponic gardening, books, pellet grills and more. Also the parts for DIY installation.
