PVC pipe?

I was wondering...because I have heard, that for my dragon Gobi, that pvc pipe can be used for his hidey hole...but I heard that pvc pipe leeches toxic stuff. Does anyone know about this? Would love to give my monster someplace to hide other than under the plants..

I have used PVC pipe for year's for hidy holes for plecos,loaches.
Sand the opening's smooth, and should be no issues.Plenty of homes use PVC for some plumbing application's and I think if it were an issue with toxin's,,that this would not pass code.

The most important medication in your fish medicine cabinet is.. Clean water.
