    some use it.. the main trouble is not the piping.. more the glue.. the one we have he in North America is toxic ( hense why its only used for our drains ).
    unless you can find some glue that is non toxic.. or if you are not using any glue then it should be fine. do some searches on this site and RC.. there are countless debates on it... I read through this when i started into reefing years ago.. in the end.. pvc was the clear winner.

    moving.. so temporarily out of SW :b8:
    planning next tank, possibly 60x30x20 on 2x plasma.
