What are the different types of PVC Pipe?
Schedule 40 PVC Conduit is used in walls, floors and ceilings in accordance with NEC 352. According to NEC 352 it can also be buried directly into the earth, encased in concrete, and used in areas exposed to direct sunlight. For areas subject to physical damage, you should use Schedule 80 PVC Conduit for the same applications (above).
PVC Utility Duct is designed for direct burial and encased burial applications. It is not designed for use above ground or in walls, floors or ceilings.
