    no hub

    you can use no hub anywhere in the country. the only time you cant use any kind of material is when the code books say cant or shall not use, those are the words to look for.

    why use no hub when you can use pvc?

    Frequently a combination

    of PVC and CI is the best, primarily for noise reduction issues. It's no fun sitting in house and having the water closets flush and hearing the rush of...water, through the system transferred to the lower living spaces. CI will effectively dampen that noise. CI for the risers and some laterals is a idea.

    to be sure

    you need to check with your local town as codes can vary from town to town on long island. most likely you are ok but i have heard rumors of certain areas requiring DWV  (copper).

    pvc and cast iron

    after re-reading the book always a good idea i figured out what they were saying.no hub is fine but you cant use mechanical joints on above ground installations while using pvc. i learned on cast iron and find the change to pvc hard to make and as for pex for water supply......................pretty soon the trade will be gone
