ABS domestic waste pipe. 15 years through all of the Great Lakes, the Gulf and the Bahamas, absolutely no smell, no leaks, no problems .... hard to argue with.

PVC Schedule 80 Pipe is for pressure applications, and has a thicker wall than Schedule 40 pipe. PVC Schedule 80 is highly durable, with high tensile and impact strength. It has better sound deadening qualities than PVC and ABS Foam Core pipes. Installation requires the use of primer and solvent cement.
I believe that if any rigid pipe is used, it should also be isolated from shock and stress by using adequate support, and flexible pipe (Trident 101/102) between the pipe, and any fixture mounted to the vessel (deck plate, holding tank, head, etc.).

Re: Head hoses

Jim;

Thanks for the question since I'm about to rebuild mine next week. Adding to your request, can anyone advise where I can get a rebuid kit for the standard head. I believe I need a Wilcox Crittenden Headmate 1460, Maintenance Kit, (#37072) send an e mail if you can help.
