    Just checked the current Florida code, and it does list such a pipe as being an approved pipe for above ground drainage, waste, and vent pipe.

    Cellular core pipe still gets used a lot around here, but it is still Sch 40 pipe, with a 3 1/2" OD.

    So the drywall is touching the pipe. . Will there still be room if I put a sleeve on still? Seems like there would be no room to do that

    dude, cut the rock out. if you have to patch back with 3/8" rock or 1/4" rock instead of 1/2" do it. little extra mud and fiberglass tape no one will ever know

    use your pocket knife, shave the rock down thin, what ever it takes

    OP,
    If that same pipe vents through the roof, check for water infiltration there.

    the one you put on, does not fit, look at it.

    is that a drain or a vent?

    if its a drain in needs to have a smooth drain way inside or it will catch stuff and clog up

    the band i posted wil give you that correct fit. it is also thinner, which will help with your sheet rock problem

    The inside was smooth... This is a pic of the label. I did test it and no leak.. It is a drain from tub/shower

    It looks like the difference is sheilded vs. Flexible?

    you need to get a mision band size is 3" plastic x 3" plastic= 3"pl x 3"pl

    that is how they are sized

    plxpl
