Yes I've been been making rope shutes of this material since the early  
70s, when I worked in the development department of one of the early  
manufacturers of such pipe. It works extremely well.

Leeds, Kent, where the back four ropes were infamously badly behaved,  
was probably one of the first towers to get shutes made of PVC drain  

What specifically do you want to know?
