In response to Re: sewage line replacement
If you use schedule 40 PVC, then it may be the better material in the long run. Lightweight Sewer and Drain PVC, can crush or distort if buried deeply. The only time we use cast-iron or clay sewer pipe is in a fireproof constructed building where plastic is not allowed anywhere on the site, even outside underground.

: I am about to replace my sewage line and would like to have cast iron pipe installed instead of PVC. One service person is telling me PVC because it is smoother on the inside and another says cast iron becasue it's more durable. I can't seem to find a site comparing the two. Can anyone give me some insight? Thanks.
