    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Describes the requirements for solid wall pipes, fittings and the system of unplasticized poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC-U) piping systems in the field of non-pressure underground drainage and sewerage: a) outside the building structure (application area code "U"); and b) both buried in ground within the building structure (application area code "D") and outside the building.
