It may be DWV (drain, waste, vent, not pressure rated). Check to see if you can find any sort of rating on it. Usually it's on the side of the walls and will be in PSI in the US of MPa in the UK. If it's a simple combustion you could risk it, but realistically it's much better just to replace it.

You mean like this?

Well that means it's probably thin-wall PVC, used on houses as guttering. It's thinner then DWV and I would not personally use it for that reason.

If you are building a combustion, try and use thicker PVC pipe and fittings, DWV should be fine but there is a chance it could explode. In that case you'll need to use pressure rated parts.

In a pneumatic or 'advanced combustion' (uses metered propane or MAPP) I would recommend to never, ever use DWV PVC. DWV isn't pressure rated, meaning it's never been pressure tested and you'll never know how low of a pressure it could blow up at.

Here's an article on how-to identify pressure rated PVC:

Everyone has them everywhere.

Like I said, the one in the picture is used on houses for guttering, it's not DWV but down-pipe or spouting. It's thinner then DWV and far more dangerous to use.
