Can PVC pipe be used for indoor plumbing?
Thursday, October 25, 2018
It depends on what you want to use it for. PVC pipe is approved by the building codes for drain, waste, and vent (DWV) pipes, but not for water distribution inside the walls of a house. To learn why, see our blog post Why can't PVC be used for water pipe inside a house.
And, if you are concerned about water quality with plastic piping, go to our our post Are plastic pipes (PVC, CPVC, and PEX) safe for drinking water? Also, you can learn about the premature aging problems when PVC pipe is exposed to sunlight at Why is sunlight exposure bad for PVC pipe?
