The Most Thorough and Far-reaching Revision Yet

The new 5th edition of the Handbook of PVC Pipe Design and Construction is the most comprehensive and up-to-date reference on PVC pipe and fittings. It provides practical engineering and construction information. It includes recommendations applicable to the design and use of primarily underground PVC piping systems in both pressure and non-pressure applications. Previous editions have been used by engineers all across North America and around the globe in the utility and consulting engineering sectors, as well as in universities and technical institutions.

New to the Fifth Edition

Four new chapters

  • PVC Pressure Pipe Installation
  • PVC Non-Pressure Pipe Installation
  • Trenchless Installation of PVC Pipe
  • Molecularly Oriented Polyvinyl Chloride Pipe (PVCO)

Updated and improved graphs and tables

More open page format

The collaborative result of thousands of hours of research and review, the contents of the 5th edition are numerically formatted by section and subsection, as well as by figure and table designation. This allows easy reference and quick access. The Handbook of PVC Pipe Design and Construction is a must-have reference for design engineers, public and private pipe utility managers, and students. A more complete text on PVC pipe is not available.

About the Author

Welcome to the PVC Pipe Association MissionOur mission is to promote use of longer-life, lower-maintenance, corrosion-proof PVC piping in water and wastewater systems - for real sustainability, strength and long-term asset management.OverviewFounded in 1971 as a non-profit organization, the Uni-Bell PVC Pipe Association is the authoritative source of information on PVC pipe. It serves the engineering, regulatory, public health and standardization communities. Introduced in North America in 1951, corrosion-proof PVC piping offers a superior, proven and truly sustainable solution for underground infrastructure, helping municipalities spend smarter and giving taxpayers the best return on their dollar. Uni-Bell staff provide users with information on the design and application of gasketed-joint PVC pipe. We also produce technical publications and recommend standards recognized throughout the world. Moreover, research sponsored by Uni-Bell in the areas of buried pipe deflection, durability, ultraviolet aging, direct tapping, cyclic surge performance, etc., has demonstrated PVC's versatility, ease of installation and maintenance, as well as its unsurpassed durability.The PVC pipe industry contributes in excess of $14 billion annually to the US economy and supports over 25,000 jobs. With over two million miles in service, PVC pipe is the product of choice for buried water, sewer, drainage and irrigation infrastructure.
