|Publication Date:||10 August 2001|
|ICS Code (Irrigation and drainage equipment):||65.060.35|
1.1 This practice establishes procedures for the design and installation of thermoplastic flexible piping systems, for underground irrigation systems. Because there is considerable variability in end-use requirements, soil conditions, and thermoplastic piping characteristics, the intent of this practice is to outline general objectives and basics of systems design, proper installation procedures, and to provide pertinent references.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units which are for information only and are not considered standard.
1.3 This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, 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.
