black pvc? i don't think i've seen that before. i've seen it in gray though, and it's fine to use. as long as it's not painted it should be fine.

the only thing i know that's black and used for drains is cast iron. i don't think i've ever seen black plastic drain pipes, but maybe they sell them out where you live. again, if the color is completely through the plastic, i don't see how it could be a problem to use.

ABS plastic pipe is used in plumbing for air ducts and such. PVC is so cheap that I would not trust ABS pipe as it does not hold pressure well and gets brittle over time.
