    Keywords

    field leak test; hydrostatic leak test; leak test; polyethylene pipe; Field testing--pipe construction/applications; Hydrostatic leak testing; Polyethylene (PE) pipe; Pressure pipelines/piping systems;

    Rationale

    The purpose of this project is to add reference to crosslinked polyethylene in appropriate locations within the document. The rationale is that this test method is also appropriate for pipelines of crosslinked polyethylene (PEX), and several users of crosslinked polyethylene would like to reference this test method.
