    Withdrawn Rationale:

    This practice covers general and basic procedures related to the proper installation of thermoplastic, flexible, pressure piping, 36 in. nominal size and smaller, for underground irrigation systems. Because there is considerable variability in end-use requirements, soil conditions, and thermoplastic piping characteristics, it is the intent of this practice to outline general objectives and basics of proper installation and to provide pertinent references, rather than to prescribe detailed installation procedures.

    Formerly under the jurisdiction of Committee F17 on Plastic Piping Systems, this practice was withdrawn in January 2012 in accordance with section 10.5.3.1 of the Regulations Governing ASTM Technical Committees, which requires that standards shall be updated by the end of the eighth year since the last approval date.

    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice covers general and basic procedures related to the proper installation of thermoplastic, flexible, pressure piping, 36 in. nominal size and smaller, for underground irrigation systems. Because there is considerable variability in end-use requirements, soil conditions, and thermoplastic piping characteristics, it is the intent of this practice to outline general objectives and basics of proper installation and to provide pertinent references, rather than to prescribe detailed installation procedures.

    1.2 This practice should not be used for installing thermoplastic underground sewer, drain, potable water, conduit or gas service piping.

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

    1.4 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, 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.
