Flex PVC for indoor plumbing?

Hello all,

I'm wondering if it's OK to finish the last 3 feet or so of a vanity and shower drain line with flexible PVC? it's a tight space and it would make it much easier, don't know if flex PVC can be used for indoor plumbing or not though.

John: Welcome to the forums! PVC is not flexible, so I'm not sure what you are referring to. You can't use anything less than schedule 20 pvc if that is what you are using, and it don't bend.

i think you might be talking about the same kind of tubing that they use for hot tubs and whirlpool bathtubs. it's more of a tubing than a pipe? if this is what you're considering then no, you can't use it. just use sch 40 pvc.
