Reclaimed Water Engineering Design

PVC pressure pipe standards used in reclaimed water applications are summarized in this document.
This Uni-Bell Technical Report, "UNI-TR-6, PVC Force Main Design," details the Association's recommended design procedures for selecting the appropriate class of PVC pressure pipe for force main applications.


Thrust restraint is needed to address changes in diameter or direction. The Thrust Restraint Calculator enables engineers and designers to quickly determine the thrust restraint needs for PVC piping systems. The PVC pipe industry offers a full line of thrust restraint products to meet every project need. Please contact one of our Regional Engineers for specific product and design questions.
