    Abstract

    This specification covers requirements and test methods for materials, dimensions, workmanship, chemical resistance, and joint tightness of poly (vinyl chloride) (PVC) sewer and drain pipe and fittings. The pipe shall be made from virgin cell 12164 with a certain minimum tensile strength, 12454 or 12454 poly(vinyl chloride) compounds. The fittings shall be made from virgin poly(vinyl chloride) compounds of cell classification PVC 12454, PVC 12454, or PVC 13343. Compounds that have different cell classification because one or more properties are superior to those of the specified compounds are also acceptable. In order to determine the overall performance of the pipes and fittings, the following tests shall be done: flattening test, joint tightness test, and perforation test. The pipe and fittings shall be homogeneous throughout and free from visible cracks, holes, foreign inclusions, or other injurious defects. The pipe shall be as uniform as commercially practical in color, opacity, density, and other physical properties.

    This abstract is a brief summary of the referenced standard. It is informational only and not an official part of the standard; the full text of the standard itself must be referred to for its use and application. ASTM does not give any warranty express or implied or make any representation that the contents of this abstract are accurate, complete or up to date.

    Significance and Use

    The pipe and fittings in this specification are designed and have the physical, chemical, and other properties for sewer and drainage applications outside the building. The pipe is not intended for use as public or municipal collector sewers. The following lists the typical applications for the sewer and drain pipe:

    Building sewers and underground drainsstandard,

    Storm drainagestandard and perforated,

    House connections to septic tanksstandard,

    Leaching system piping for septic tank effluentsstandard and perforated,

    Footing drains (foundation drains)standard and perforated,

    Industrial waste disposalstandard and perforated, and

    Land drainagestandard and perforated.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers requirements and test methods for materials, dimensions, workmanship, chemical resistance, and joint tightness of poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) sewer and drain pipe and fittings. Perforated pipe is also covered; the joint tightness test is not applicable for perforated pipe. A form of marking to indicate compliance with this specification is also included.

    1.2 The text of this specification references notes, footnotes, and appendixes which provide explanatory material. These notes and footnotes (excluding those in tables and figures) shall not be considered as requirements of the specification.

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are for information only.

    1.4 The following precautionary caveat pertains only to the test methods portion, Section 6, of this specification: This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.
