Historical (view previous versions of standard)
This specification covers the physical and dimensional requirements and associated test methods for corrugated polyethylene (PE) pipe and fittings intended for underground applications, particularly in soil drainage and septic field leach beds, where soil support is given to the flexible walls. Pipe and fittings shall adhere to physical test requirements such as elongation, brittleness, pipe stiffness, and perforations.
