Plumbing In San Diego CA. with Cast-Iron, and ABS Piping.
Question Posted on Quora.
I believe your asking about Plastic piping used in plumbing situations.
ABS pipe is the material mostly used for any Plastic Plumbing Pipe Installation. ABS Pipe & fittings are made from Acrylonitrile-Butadiene-Styrene (ABS for short).
The reason that these piping systems are more commonly used for plumbing whether it's ABS, PVC, CPVC or other Plastic materials is for the simple reason of cost. And Ease of Installation. Before Imagine installing Cast-Iron Pipe?
They are very heavy I mean there lengths of pipe which I have installed in Hotels and a Sharp Medical Center. When I have carried the cast iron piping was somewhat difficult.Plumbing In San Diego CA. How do you repair a broken drainage line?
When installing Cast-Iron. You also need several tools which are called snap cutters to cut the cast-iron piping. and a ratchet to tighten the no-hub bands with. Which will already come pre-set to the right amount that it should be tightened to. It will make a clicking sound. (Once you become knowledgeable enough many plumbers also use a drill.)
Anyways when Installing ABS. Is also so much lighter to work with and easier to install.
