The reason it is in the drainage and irrigation section is because it isn't 
PVC.  It's ABS, and in the US is illegal to use for supply plumbing.  In 
continuous contact with water it will leach chemicals used in plastic 
manufacture known as "plasticizers".  These things are toxic, and I would 
strongly recommend against using it in your aquarium.
