PVC Solvent Weld Sewer Pipe and Fittings
An Engineered PVC Sewer And Drainage System
Solid PVC drain sewer, storm sewer and stub pipe are engineered specifically for the collection of domestic waste and storm water from either concrete slab foundations, foundation to the sewer lateral/ stub line, or from the property line to the municipal sewer line and storm sewer.
PVC solid sewer pipe is used for the collection of domestic waste and storm water, while PVC perforated sewer pipe is used for septic field and foundation drainage.
Both pipes are manufactured from chemical and corrosion resistant PVC and are unaffected by aggressive soil conditions, sewer gases and sulfuric acid created as a by-product of the hydrogen sulfide (H2S) cycle. Their high strength and flexibility enable them to deflect and absorb the stresses that can occur with earth settlement, soil movement or loading. The lifecycle of a PVC sewer system is estimated to be more than 50 years.
Unmatched Long-Term Performance
PVC Solvent Weld Sewer Pipe can used in a number of applications such as building sanitary and storm drain lines, foundation perimeter drains and septic field distribution piping systems.
Its solvent weld assembly method offers tighter joints, eliminating infiltration, exfiltration and the potential for root infestation.
Flexible and Damage Resistant
A plastic sewer system costs less to operate and maintain because it has greater flow capacity per given size and contains fewer joints. PVC pipe is flexible enough to conform to shifts and settling caused by unstable soil conditions without cracking, breaking or sustaining damage to opening joints.
Greater Hydraulic Efficiency
PVC pipe has the smoothest flow surface of any piping material today resulting in a Manning flow coefficient, N of .009. As a result, the pipe will not be susceptible to blockages and will maintain a high flow capacity over the life of the pipeline.
