All of the drain and vent pipes in my house are ABS. I’m moving some lines and removing others. Apparently in my neck of the woods (VT/NH) ABS pipe and fittings has gone the way of the dinosaurs. I’ve been to every plumbing supply house, lumber yard and hardware store in my area and no one carries any ABS. Even HD doesn’t have it. So, the question is, can I simply use the all-purpose glue that says it works on ABS and PVC and mix the two types of plastic together? This seems too easy, so I figure there must be some reason why it can’t be done. Any info would be appreciated. Another option that was suggested to me was to use Mission or Fernco couplings to join each end of the new PVC section to the old ABS. Which way would be best?
