Plumbing Pipe Glue?

I have always heard you can't glue white and black pipe together...I can't find black pipe where I live but 2 hardware store owners say with this all purpose (Green Glue) I can put them together.What do you say?

I was told that you couldn't either but I have done it a number of times. A guy that has a business installing and repairing underground sprinkler systems told me what glue to get. I don't recall what the glue I used was but it was not the same as I used on white pipe.

Does it say "ABS to PVC Green Transition Cement" on the can?

Oatey does make a transition cement and it is green and that is what it is for-----ABS to PVC (black pipe to white pipe)

Finding ABS pipe is weird like that. Some places have it, some don't.

Home Depot (and others) should let you buy it online and have it shipped to the store for free. Or try a mobile home supply store, if you have one nearby. Or buy it while you're on vacation.

Thanks Tim...I went to Home Depot and they said to use that ABS to PVC Transition Glue on both. So time will tell if they are right.
