Wastewater lines can be a real headache. If they're not somewhat flexible at the joints, they can have issues when cold weather and frost heaves cause the pipes to displace. If that happens, you can end up with some serious problems with sewer leakage and potential contamination of ground and surface water supplies. Fortunately, there's a better option than standard PVC; SDR35 PVC sewer pipe. Here's a bit more on this flexible, solid-sealing option and how it can benefit your water utility in the field.

Do you know the value of clean water and a solid water distribution infrastructure? When I first moved onto our farm, I gained a strong grasp of the value of water. The year-round springs had dried up in the summer of 2004 and everything had to be hauled in.
