    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers cast iron soil pipe and fittings for use in gravity flow applications. It establishes standards covering material, principal dimensions, and dimensional tolerances for hubless cast iron soil pipe and fittings. These pipe and fittings are not intended for pressure applications, as the selection of the proper size for sanitary drain, waste, vent, and storm drain systems allows free air space for gravity drainage.

    1.2 This specification covers pipe and fittings of the following patterns and applies to any other patterns that conform with the requirements given herein.
