    Abstract

    This specification covers water well casing pipe and couplings made from thermoplastic materials in standard dimension ratios (SDR), SCH 40 and SCH 80. Well casing is produced in either plain end, belled end, or threaded, and is used for water wells, ground water monitoring, leak detection, recovery systems, dewatering systems, and waste disposal. The well casing pipes, well casing pipe couplings, pipe stiffness and flattening, impact resistance, tup puncture resistance, thread, threaded joints, joint strength, and well screens shall be tested to meet the requirements prescribed.

    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.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers water well casing pipe and couplings made from thermoplastic materials in standard dimension ratios (SDR), SCH 40 and SCH 80.

    1.2 Specifications are provided for the application of these materials to water well and ground water monitoring applications. Flush threaded joint systems are included for screen and casing used primarily in the construction of ground water monitoring wells (see Practice D5092).

    1.3 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. (See IEEE/ASTM SI 10.)

    Note 1Certain field conditions may require alternative materials to ensure safe long-term use. The user should consult federal, state, and local codes governing the use of thermoplastic materials for well casing or monitor pipe.
    Note 2This standard specifies dimensional, performance and test requirements for plumbing and fluid handling applications, but does not address venting of combustion gases.

    1.4 Although the pipe sizes and SDR values listed in this specification are generally available, numerous other plastic pipes in Schedule 40 and 80 wall, other SDR values and various outside diameters have been used for well casing. Such products are often selected because they fulfill certain needs and Annex A1 includes a list of these Plastic Pipe Well Casing Specials.

    1.5 The following safety hazards caveat pertains only to the test method 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.
