Most codes either prohibit inteconnecting ABS andPVC, or if they allow it, only allow one traition at a connection and then the remainder of the system has to be of one material. If you do interconnect the materials, then you need special glue for it.

: In a residential drain system can I use ABS or GENOVA joints with PVC pipe? I have on hand a lot of older joints, but am also using some newer PVC joints and PVC pipe.
: Do codes allow/prohibit this practice? Is it technically a good/bad idea?
