1.1 This practice describes the procedures for the rehabilitation of sewer lines and conduits (4 to 15 in. diameter) by the insertion of a folded PVC pipe, which is heated, pressurized, and expanded against the interior surface of an existing pipe with either a mechanical rounding device or steam pressure. The finished PVC pipe will be continuous and conform to the existing conduit. This rehabilitation process can be used in a variety of gravity applications, such as sanitary sewers, storm sewers and process piping.
