Organization: ASTM
Publication Date: 10 April 2002
Status: inactive
Page Count: 3
ICS Code (Pipes and fittings of other materials): 23.040.50
scope:

This test method covers procedures for testing precast concrete manhole sections when using the vacuum test method to demonstrate the integrity of the installed materials and the construction procedures. This test method is used for testing concrete manhole sections utilizing mortar, mastic, or gasketed joints.

This test method is intended to be used as a preliminary test to enable the installer to demonstrate the condition of the concrete manholes prior to backfill.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety problems, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This test method is the companion to metric Test Method C 1244M; therefore, no SI equivalents are shown in this test method.

NOTE 1 - Vacuum test criteria presented in this test method are similar to those in general use. The test and criteria have been widely and successfully used in testing manholes.

NOTE 2 - It should be understood that no correlation has been found between vacuum (air) and hydrostatic tests.
