Hello

I have not seen aluminium drain pipe before. This system has cast, aluminium and copper. Any comments are appreciated.

Its a subtle hint all the Cast Iron is shot, unless some has been replaced already with ABS.

What will drano (R) or anything with sodium hydroxide do to an aluminum pipe?

Looks more like stainless steel, which would be acceptable.

Aluminum is not an approved drain material.

Aluminum drain pipe was started about 15 years ago to compete with NH cast iron, same OD but lighter. Found to be too expensive.

Hello Everyone!! :mrgreen:

Must say…for anyone living in a region with a damp climate such as the UK, a rainwater drainage system is essential. Providing valuable protection against heavy rainfall, a rainwater system that is properly installed can save thousands of pounds worth of damage being done and ensure the comfort and safety of the home-owner and their family. You can find best aluminium pipes from Clinton Aluminium. They are best manufacturers of aluminium.

The rainwater drainage system is made up of a number of important parts, each contributing a valuable role that ensures the optimal functioning of the entire system. aluminium drain pipe helps in that way…

Thanks!! :):smiley:
