Default Difference between above ground and building drainage pipes

Florida building code has 3 types of sanitary drainage pipe. Above, under and building.

I assume the difference between above and building meaning above is exposed to the outside (sun etc) and building not.

If that is correct, I assume I can use (cheaper) building drain pipes for anything in a houses crawl space and change to underground material as soon as I go into the ground ?

For the drainage and waste I would go with polyethylene or corrugated throughout the place, no need to buy fittings, it bends the way you want it goes on super quick too.

just use the cheapest stuff you can find and use duct tape to put it together, this way if you change your mind its easy to take apart..

Our local hardware store actually has one for rent. I don't know why, and I am pretty sure no one ever rents it. Fusionweld is not for the faint of heart. It takes practice and those fittings ain't cheap when you mess up. Like male adapters for 1-1/2" are like 75$ a piece I believe. They are stainless, but they only offer one stainless alloy and it's like the same kind they use for the most corrosive substances short of needing monel.




We did a job, a large expensive development. All of the buried pumped septic and effluent lines were fusionweld. We were running thousands of feet of 2", most less than 300'. There was a separate crew from a strictly commercial company running 600'-1000' runs of 4" for the main water lines. They would do like 100'+ feet at a time and then use a giant bucket loader to pull it around and into the trench. Then they would go back with the welder and stitch the lengths together and cut in tees for the hydrants.


Makes me glad to be a service man. I would hate to work in a barren dirt field in the middle of summer with a fusionwelder in my hand. It got sprayed to keep the dust down like every few weeks when someone important was going to show up.
