New Construction Plumbing: White PVC vs The Black Stuff
I've always assumed that white pvc pipes used for drains are the only way to go and never even saw the black pipes. Recently, however, I toured a house that the framer we're using built that is a medium range house (not high end) and the plumber there was using the black pipes (don't know the name) then I toured another house the framer was building and a different plumber was using the black stuff as well. This house is going to list on the market for $2.29 Million. A plumber I know told me the black pipes are inferior and used by plumbers to save money. Is this true? What are the differences? I'm confused because even the high end builder was using them. Are they that much cheaper? I can't find out anything about it online. Thanks!
