: I'm checking over the drain plan for my house and I've been reading peter hemps book about plumbing. In any case, he recommends something other than plastic for upper floor toilet drains.

: How noisy is it really?
: Is there a quiet alternative other than iron?

Jahyen,
It's hard to beat cast iron pipes for quiet. With plastic pipes, you will be able to hear the water draining in the ceiling and the walls.
Some people spec in cast iron for toilet waste drains down to the crawlspace, and use plastic pipe for venting.
