We have a PVC outlet pipe in our basement for water from the sump pump to be pumped outside. It was previously hung from the joists using white, plastic straps. Last night a few of them broke, so I replaced those with metal strapping.
After reading a bit online, I'm seeing some people say that you shouldn't use metal straps for PVC pipe since it might rub against the pipe and wear through it, so only plastic straps should be used. Any merit to this claim? Should I instead just use plastic straps?
Only went to metal so they wouldn't break again and cause a big problem if we weren't home to notice next time.
