Description / Abstract:


This technical note was developed and published with the technical help and financial support of the members of the Plastics Pipe Institute. The members have shown their interest in quality products by assisting independent standard-making and user organizations in the development of standards, and also by developing reports on an industry-wide basis to help engineers, code officials, specifying groups, and users.

This technical note has been prepared to provide those responsible for the maintenance of existing HDPE pipelines with suggested general guidelines for the repair of those lines that have been subjected to third party or other unforeseen damage. These guidelines constitute a set of basic operations that have been demonstrated by test and experience to produce satisfactory repairs with commercially available materials. Each specific procedure must be acceptable to, and qualified by, the operator having legal responsibility for the performance of the piping system. This document was not intended to provide system design information. Go to the PPI website at www.plasticpipe.org for different system design documents.
