1.1

This Standard specifies requirements for profile polyethylene (PE) storm sewer and drainage pipe and fittings for gasketed and non-gasketed leak-proof applications. The products covered under this standard may be manufactured using either virgin or recycled (post-industrial or post-consumer) materials.

Profile wall pipe includes both open and closed profile with smooth interiors and sizes based on controlled inside diameter. Open profile pipe is of an annular construction. Closed profile pipe is of an annular or helical construction.

Notes:

1) Pipe and fittings manufactured in accordance with this Standard should be installed in accordance with CSA B182.11.

2) Refer to Annex A for recommended quality control test frequencies.

3) Refer to Annex B for additional minimum quality control test frequencies for pipes made with recycled materials.

4) Refer to Annex D for fitting patterns of the lay length of fittings covered by this Standard.

5) Annex G should be followed to ensure that the requested products are described adequately.

1.2

This Standard does not cover helical open profile pipe.

Note: The ESCR requirements of this Standard can be unsuitable for helical open profile pipe.

1.3

This Standard does not cover 210 kPa pipe in sizes smaller than NPS-12.
