Organization: CSA
Publication Date: 1 January 2020
Status: active
Page Count: 55
ICS Code (Water supply systems): 91.140.60
ICS Code (Plastics pipes): 23.040.20
scope:

This Standard covers rigid polyvinylchloride (PVC) pipe and fittings intended for use in pressure applications such as water mains, water service piping, and process piping. The fittings covered by this Standard include moulded, solvent-cemented, gasketed, or threaded fittings, and fittings that have been fabricated for use with any joining method.

Notes:

1) Where PVC pipe and fittings are to be used in non-water applications, the manufacturer should be consulted.

2) This Standard does not specify requirements for venting of combustion gases. In Canada, ULC S636 specifies testing and marking requirements for pipe, fittings, and accessories intended for venting of combustion gases. In the United States, UL 1738 specifies testing and marking requirements for pipe, fittings, and accessories intended for venting of combustion gases.

This Standard specifies requirements for materials, quality of work, dimensions, solvent cement, and markings for pipe and fittings. Requirements for hydrostatic sustained pressure, extrusion, impact resistance, and quality are also specified for pipe.

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.
