    Default ABS supply Plumbing?

    Of course house is empty, and has been winterized, and the water is still shut off. Client accepted the inspection that way.

    Main line from street, black vinyl with clamp then 3/4" abs black plastic supply line, I read the abs on it said 100 psi as well. All in basement, where the laundry room is. The supply plumbing by the laundry area is a conglomerate of PVC, CPVC, ABS, copper going up to the bath tub and some galvanized. I am clearly going to say this mess need cleaned up by a plumber

    Main question is Black abs even ok to drink out of? I do not believe I have ever seen 3/4 black plastic,

    ABS is approved for water service piping, color does not matter. What does matter is the standard to which it was tested. Water service piping goes "to" the structure and does not "enter" or go into the structure.

    From the IRC:
    - TABLE P2904.4
    - - WATER SERVICE PIPE
    - - - Acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS) plastic pipe - and marked - ASTM D 1527 or ASTM D 2282
