Description / Abstract:

This standard describes underground installation and hydrostatic testing procedures for polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or molecularly oriented polyvinyl chloride (PVCO) pressure pipe and fittings that comply with either ANSI*/AWWA C900, ANSI/AWWA C905, ANSI/AWWA C907, or ANSI/AWWA C909. These plastic components are installed in piping systems that may contain components made from other materials. It may be necessary to supplement this standard with provisions for special requirements not included in this standard (see foreword, Sec. III). Such special requirements should be specified by the purchaser with input from the purchaser's engineering consultant(s), product manufacturer(s), and/or supplier(s).


The purpose of this standard is to provide the minimum requirements for underground installation and hydrostatic testing procedures for PVC or PVCO pressure pipe and fittings used to transport potable water, reclaimed water, irrigation water, or wastewater, or for the conveyance of any fluid compatible with PVC or PVCO.
