This International Standard specifies two methods for testing pipes and fittings or joints for plastics piping systems intended for use in underground drainage and sewerage systems for their resistance to deformation and leakage, when subjected to sustained external loading in conjunction with the passage of hot water.
Method A involves temperature cycling, by passing hot water and cold water alternately, and is applicable to pipes and associated fittings having a mean outside diameter dem < 190 mm.
Method B involves passing hot water only, except at intervals specified for measurement of internal deflection, and is applicable to pipes and associated fittings having a mean outside diameter 190 mm < dem < 510 mm.
