    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for PVC pipes and fittings for underground disposal of storm or surface water. The Standard includes requirements for both plain and structured wall pipes and fittings.

    Scope - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    This Standard specifies requirements for PVC pipes and fittings for conveyance of stormwater or surface water. Pipes and fittings complying with this Standard are not intended for the conveyance of drinking water. The Standard includes requirements for both plain and structured wall pipes and fittings.Alternative methods for determining compliance with this Standard are given in Appendix A.NOTE: Pipe manufactured to this Standard should only be used and installed in accordance with AS 2032, AS/NZS 2566.1, AS 3500.0, and NZS 7643.
