Standard Practice for Installation of Polyethylene (PE) and Encapsulated Cement Mortar Formed in Place Lining System (FIPLS) for the Rehabilitation of Water Pipelines (Withdrawn 2022)

Significance and Use

5.1 This practice is for use by specifiers, regulatory agencies, owners and inspection organizations that are involved in the rehabilitation of pressure mains and conduits, and in particular potable water lines in the diameter range of 4 to 12 in. The supplier of the FIPLS lining system product should be consulted for design and installation information.


1.1 This practice covers requirements and test methods for installation of a semi-structural polyethylene (PE) and encapsulated cement mortar formed-in-place lining system (FIPLS) intended for the rehabilitation of water pipelines from 4 in. to 12 in. This renewal process involves installing a folded PE liner with multiple hooks on the outside face into an existing water pipeline then pumping cement mortar into the annular space and progressively reforming the liner against the original pipe wall by means of forcing a reforming device through the pipeline.

1.2 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.

1.3 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. Particular attention is drawn to those safety regulations and requirements involving entering into and working in confined spaces.

1.4 This practice is to be used with the material specified in 4.2.1 of F2718 the Standard Specification for Polyethylene (PE) and Cement Materials for an Encapsulated Cement Mortar Formed in Place Lining System (FIPLS) for the Rehabilitation of Water Pipelines.
