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.

Flexible Strength:

The flexible, locked-in elastomeric ring creates a tight seal between pipes while still allowing for movement between the pipes. That means if you deal with expansion, contraction, vibration or other motion over and around your pipes, they'll still stay sealed up properly without any leakage problems to the surrounding environment.

Pressure Resistant:


Though not used for pressurized lines, the SDR35 PVC sewer pipe system has been tested to the ASTM D3219 standard, providing you with a solid seal. This standard ensures that the system can bear up to a 25-foot head pressure test as well as a 22" Hg vacuum, providing strong performance even in the most extreme weather conditions.

Buh-Bye Sealants:

Why bother with messy cement? The ring gasket system allows for a very simple connection and installation process. With a simple push to press the inner pipe past the gasket, the entire system is locked in place, sealed against leakage and ready to go. There's no waiting for sealants to cure or slathering on cement to create a seal in poor weather.

Integrated Durability:

The bell on the pipe is an integral part of the overall PVC matrix, making it just as strong as the rest of the system. The spigot ends are pre-beveled in the factory, making it easy to quickly get the other end of the pipe to slide neatly into place and quickly line up with the integrated ring gasket system.

Easy Installation:

The light weight of SDR35 PVC pipe makes it very easy to get it into place with virtually no real lifting involved. It's easy to cut with your existing tools, just like standard PVC, such as a hacksaw or power saw, and is simple to bevel in the field to quickly get that same, easy-to-install process as you would with pre-finished ends.

SDR35 PVC Sewer Pipe Is A Solid Investment:

Pure Gold!

Like other PVC pipe systems, SDR35 PVC sewer pipe is resistant to a great many chemicals and environments, making it a great long-term choice for your water utility's infrastructure investment projects. It works well with corrosive environments, sewer gas, sulfuric acid, alkaline compounds, and acidic soils. At the same time, it's very resistant to scouring, abrasions, and gouging.
