what grade of no hub cast iron should i use for residential use?

what grade of no hub cast iron pipe should i use for residential use? there seems to be 3 grade types or 2 types like heavy duty and service weight. i am currently going with type L copper for my water supply lines that i am installing since i do not like type M since it seems to light weight. but anyhow what grade of no hub is best and what types of no hub are good for what places.

I believe it's just for cast iron. Why don't you want to use PVC, in place of cast iron?

I never installed cast iron so I don't know about the grades. Check with you local plumbing supply.

I've never installed cast iron either, but found this that may be helpful:

Cast Iron, PVC, ABS, and CPVC pipe and fittings for plumbing and industrial systems

Seems there are two grades of Hub and Spigot pipe, but only one of hubless for DWV plumbing use.
