Traditionally, the most common methods water utilities in theUnited States and Canada use to contain thrust are concretethrust blocks and external mechanical joint restraints (top).Next-generation joint-restraint products include integral PVC joint restraints and self-restraining gaskets (bottom)—internalsystems that minimize corrosion and installation time.

Integral Joint RestraintSelf-Restraining Gasket
A McKinney water distributioncrew used self-restrainingmechanical joint gaskets at valvetie-ins and integral joint restraintsfor pipe-to-pipe connections.In Garland, operators minimized the risk of over-inserting the spigot into the bell during jointassembly by aligning the casing spacer edgewith an insertion mark on the pipe spigot.
