Is ABS solid pipe available anywhere near central New Jersey? I've called around and can only find foam core or cell varieties. I prefer solid for it's stiffness and durability.

    Not available in my area. There is a little of it here from about 30 years ago.
    I find PVC sch 40 seems to be stronger, looks better and no special glue for transition.

    I think it is like the Unicorn. I have read about it in books but never seen one....

    @CLamb why don’t you just switch over to pvc which is available everywhere? As per code you must use a no-hub couplings to make the transition from ABS to pvc. Transition glues not allowed as per code.
