Foundation sleeve

List,

I have done a search of past posts but haven't found exactly what I was looking for.

I am building an apt/garage on my property and need to run my waste and supply lines through the foundation. I know I need to sleeve around the pipes but I am not sure what the sleeve can be made out of. Our residential building code uses the 2003 UPC. Our local library does not have a copy of the code for me to review. Does anybody know what pipe materials I am allowed to use?

Thanks in advance,
B W Swede

Straight out of 2003 IPC on what code states:

305.4 Sleeves. Annular spaces between sleeves and pipes shall
be filled or tightly caulked in an approved manner. Annular
spaces between sleeves and pipes in fire-resistance-rated assemblies
shall be filled or tightly caulked in accordance with
the International Building Code.

305.5 Pipes through or under footings or foundation walls.
Any pipe that passes under a footing or through a foundation
wall shall be provided with a relieving arch, or a pipe sleeve
pipe shall be built into the foundation wall. The sleeve shall be
two pipe sizes greater than the pipe passing through the wall.

This section of the code falls under protection of pipes and plumbing fixture components.

BTW: I use PVC or cast iron, depending on what the build specs call for or what sized opening I'm using.

Hope it helps.
