This specification covers requirements and test methods for fabricated or molded poly(vinyl chloride) (PVC) gasketed sewer fittings to be used with piping manufactured to Specifications D 3034, F 679, F 789, or F 891. Fabricated fittings may be manufactured from pipe, or from a combination of pipe and injection molded parts, or from injection molded parts.
The requirements of this specification are to provide fabricated or molded PVC gasketed fittings suitable for non-pressure drainage of sewage and surface water, as well as applications involving subsurface drainage.
NOTE 1 - Industrial waste lines should be installed only with the specific approval of the governing code authority when using chemicals not commonly found in drains and sewers or temperatures in excess of 140°F (60°C), or both.
Fittings produced to this specification are intended to be installed with pipe, in accordance with Practice D 2321.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. Within the text, the SI units are given in parentheses.
The following precautionary caveat pertains to the test method portion only, Section 10, of this specification. This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use.
