sorry W_B, i have used sched. 40 flex for suction on the majority of the pools that i have plumbed without incidence. i used the proper glue and primers for pvc, abs to pvc and pvc to flex. i have a more than a few of them in the ground without issue.

dissimilar materials can be welded without issue if the right materials and techniques are used
