    New Practice for Rehabilitation of Water Mains with Deformed High-Density Polyethylene (HDPE) Pipe

    (What is a Work Item?)

    Developed by Subcommittee: F17.67 | Committee F17 | Contact Staff Manager


    1. Scope

    1.1 This practice describes the procedures for the rehabilitation of water mains with deformed high-density polyethylene (HDPE) pipe that is reformed with steam and air pressure forming a new structural pipe within a pipe. 1.2 This practice applies to the rehabilitation of 6 to 12 in. (150 to 300 mm) pipe diameters. The specifier determines the outside diameter and dimension ratio used based on conditions of the specific application. 1.3 This practice is to be used with the material specified in Specification F1533. 1.4 All pipes manufactured for this practice are pressure rated in accordance with Specification F714 and AWWA Standard C906. 1.5 Units--The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard. 1.6 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.
