For centuries, cast iron pipe and fittings have been the backbone of drain, waste and vent (DMV) plumbing systems throughout the world. As building codes have gradually given away to increasing use of PVC in both residential and commercial applications, plumbing engineers and contractors should remember that what is allowed by code may not necessarily provide the best solution. In fact, from a liability standpoint, maintaining the original specification and avoiding substitutions can be critical.
