That's a drain? Looks like a water line to me.

I could had sworn I read somewhere while taking my masters test that ABS was not to be used.

Cant find it now, maybe I saw it on the test. I just do not like it because it sags too much too soon if not supported about every 5 feet!

Here is some more of that same job. Note the dielectic protection on the heating run!:laughing:
The cold water starts with PE pipe, then copper.
The hot water starts from 1/2 gp soft copper to a steel nipple to copper. They insulated the cold line because the water comes into the house from the well just above freezing. The 1 1/2" PE line below this contraption is the drain line from the KS after the laundry ties in. These 2 lines go up to a sink in their mud room.

I exclusively use ABS, don't care for PVC, ABS is not that difficult to support it, code requires every 4' if you support every 5' your hanging and supporting it wrong.
