    1. Scope

    1.1 This specification covers requirements and test methods for flexible annular, corrugated profile wall polyethylene pipe with an interior liner. It covers nominal sizes 3 in. (75 mm), 4 in. (100 mm), 5 in. (125 mm), 6 in. (150 mm), 8 in. (200 mm), 10 in. (250 mm), 12 in. (300 mm), 15 in. (375 mm), 18 in (450 mm), and 24 in (600 mm).

    1.2 The requirements of this specification are intended to provide non-pressure (gravity flow) lined flexible annular corrugated polyethylene pipe for subsurface and land drainage systems, such as agricultural or foundations, which do not operate under surcharge pressure heads.

    Note 1: Pipe produced in accordance with this specification is to be installed in compliance with Practice F449. Lined flexible annular corrugated polyethylene provides axial flexibility allowing for subsurface installation using tile plows and allows the pipe to be coiled for storage and transport.

    Note 2: Subsurface and land drainage systems pertain principally to agricultural applications for water table control.

    Note 3: Lined flexible pipe provided in coiled lengths will experience distortion or folding in the interior pipe liner which may adversely affect flow characteristics, contact the pipe manufacturer for hydraulic design guidance for the coiled lined flexible pipe.

    1.3 This specification permits the use of recycled materials for pipe in accordance with the requirements in Section 5.

    1.4 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.

    1.5 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, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

    1.6 This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
