The DWV system in my house is Sch. 40 ABS, and I need to tap into it for the shower I'm putting in. Can I insert a PVC tee into the ABS line, as long as I use the proper cement, and follow the correct cleaning and priming instructions?

Broward County code says yes that is ok, make sure you use purple primer before blue rain and shine glue

two things is the tee a pvw dwv fitting or a water fitting, you can get pvc dwv fittings that are identical to abs but are made of pvc, and the upc plumbing code does not accept the two products to be joined together inside of the building, they do make a universal glue, but it is not upc approved,there for it is only acceptable out side of the building. but as a home owner you can do what ever you want
