Its my turn

It finally happened to us, a quality control miss. A few months ago i installed a splendid washer in our unit and it works great until today when my wife calls me at work and says the front bedroom is flooded. I get home and we vac up the water and place fans to dry the carpet. but something seems odd the washer is in the closet but that carpet was not wet, so after removing the dresser and the box cover over the pipes that run up to the closet, i find the black drain pipe was not glued and finally popped apart and there you have it, a wet floor. Now i have a question i need to glue the pipe back in so i do not know a lot about the black pipe i'm from an area that uses pvc white pipe can i inter change the white with the black or do i need to find the black fittings and is there a glue that i need to use or can i use the standard PVC cement. And thanks in advance.

I don't know the answer, but I'm sure you will get one shortly. If not, contact a plumber or see Home Depot or some other home supply dealer like that and they should know what kind of glue to use. Good luck.

You can get a glue that will work on both PVC and ABS (black) pipe or just find ABS cement.

The Black pipe is ABS and requires a ABS Glue!

Yes the black ABS pipe is exactly the same size pipe as PVC pipe inside and out. Use the red labeled oatey glue. It is meant just for this purpose. It will glue ABS/PVC/CPVC together.

The black pipe is meant for applications that are non-pressure (sewer) the white ABS pipe is rated for pressure applications. Therefore, the white pipe is thicker. You can use the white pipe in sewer applications, it will just be over kill. I would however suggest hat you stay with Black in order to prevent decreasing the internal pipe size. This may cause you difficulties in the future.
