Laying RTR Piping in the Trench

A1

Before assembly each piece of thermoplastic pipe and fitting shall be


examined for cuts, scratches, gouges, kinks, buckles, and ultra-violet
(sun) damage. Damaged lengths of pipe shall be cut out and discarded.
Damaged fittings shall be discarded. Thermoplastic pipe and fittings that
show ultra-violet damage and weathering effects shall not be used.

SAES-S-070
Para 7.1

A2

Unrestrained gasketed joint piping must be joined together in the trench.

SAES-S-070
Para 16.1

A3

Adhesive bonded and restrained gasketed joint piping of 250 mm


nominal pipe size and less may be assembled next to, or in the trench.
Piping larger than 250 mm nominal pipe size shall be assembled in the
trench.

SAES-S-070
Para 16.2

A4

For trenches 2 m deep or less, pipe assembled next to the trench shall
not be moved within three pipe lengths of an uncured joint. The pipeline
shall be lowered into the trench progressively to avoid excessive joint
angular deflection

SAES-S-070
Para 16.3

A5

For trenches deeper than 2 m, pipe shall be assembled in the trench.

SAES-S-070
Para 16.4

A6

In trenches containing firewater lines and piping with internal pressure in


excess of 200 psi, a non-woven geotextile with a unit weight of at least
130 g/m should enclose the clean sand bedding layer and backfill
materials.
Note: For other services or piping with internal pressure below 200 psi
usage of the geotextile depends on the soil conditions. Refer to
construction drawings or specifications to verify whether geotextile has
been specified / required or not.

SAES-S-070
Para 9.7.3

A7

Flanged joints shall have the following requirements:


a) Flanged joints on nonmetallic piping system shall be made with flat
face flanges and full-faced elastomeric gaskets.
b) Flanges shall have pressure rating equal to or greater than the
nonmetallic piping pressure rating.
c) Bolt tightening procedures and maximum torque for bolting on
nonmetallic flanges shall be in accordance with ASTM D4024.
d) Washers shall be used for bolting nonmetallic flanges.

SAES-L-610
Para 4.3.1

A8

In pressurized systems, connections to metal valves, larger than 50 mm


nominal pipe sizes, shall be by means of flanges

SAES-L-610
Para 4.3.4

A9

Nonburied metal valves including metal valves in buried valve boxes,


shall be supported independently of nonmetallic piping. In buried
condition, metal valves 4 inch in size and larger shall be supported
independently of nonmetalic piping.

ACCEPTANCE CRITERIA

REFERENCE

Nonmetallic pipe shall be carried through a metallic sleeve in a valve box


wall. Nonmetalic sleeve is acceptable provided the sleeve shall have
mechanical characteristics and properties at least similar to that of the
A10
pipe passing through the sleeve. The space between the pipe and
sleeve shall be sealed with approved (acceptable to the Authority Having
Jurisdiction) flexible waterproof mastic sealant.

SAES-L-610
Para 4.3.6

The distance between the valve box wall and the back of the nonmetallic
A11 flange, inside the valve box, shall be not less than 150 mm to permit
work access.

SAES-L-610
Para 4.3.7

A12 Threaded flanges shall not be used on nonmetallic piping systems

SAES-L-610
Para 4.2.2

Plastic pipes, fittings, and plastic valves that do not have built-in
protection from Ultraviolet (UV) light (exposed to sunlight) shall be
A13 shielded by painting with an exterior-grade, water-based emulsion, or
tapewrap with UV resistant pressure sensitive tape utilizing adhesive that
will not affect the plastic material.

SAES-L-610
Para 4.1.5

Prior approval from the Chairman of Plumbing and Utilities Standards


A14 Committee is required for installation of nonmetallic piping under slabs or
similar concrete structures

Assembly of RTR Piping


Joints shall be of restrained type (adhesive-bonded, butt-and wrap
lamination joints, or mechanical type joints), or unrestrained type
(gasketed bell-and-spigot type joints).
Joints shall be assembled in accordance with the manufacturer's
procedures for a specific application. Heating blankets shall be used to
cure adhesive bonded joints
Note: The heating blankets shall be applied for at least 45 minutes
