Draft Scope/Description:

1 Scope

1.1

This Standard specifies requirements for profile polypropylene (PP) sewer pipe and fittings for leak-proof applications (e.g., sanitary sewer and other gravity-flow applications).

Profile wall pipe includes both open and closed profile with smooth interiors and sizes based on controlled inside diameter. Open and closed profile pipe are both of an annular construction, but not compatible or interchangeable due to structural differences in profile geometries.

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 base inside diameters.

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

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

6) Appropriate structural design criteria for PP sewer pipe can be found in ASTM F2736 and ASTM F2764/F2764M. ASTM F2736 covers 12 to 30 NPS open profile pipe and ASTM F2764/F2764M covers 30 to 60 NPS closed profile pipe.

1.2

In this Standard, “shall” is used to express a requirement, i.e., a provision that the user is obliged to satisfy in order to comply with the Standard; “should” is used to express a recommendation or that which is advised but not required; and “may” is used to express an option or that which is permissible within the limits of the Standard.

Notes accompanying clauses do not include requirements or alternative requirements; the purpose of a note accompanying a clause is to separate from the text explanatory or informative material.

Notes to tables and figures are considered part of the table or figure and may be written as requirements.

Annexes are designated normative (mandatory) or informative (non-mandatory) to define their application.
