PVC Schedule 40 pipe is used for drainage and lower pressure water flow applications. Schedule 40 PVC pipe can handle up to 140 degrees F in temperature. Pipe lengths come in standard 10’ or 20’ sections. PVC schedule 40 pipe is available in plain end or belled end that do not require coupling for installation. Pipe sizes range from ½” through 24” in diameter. Ease of installation and many application uses are only two great benefits of PVC pipe. Schedule 40 PVC pipe is designed to handle fluid pressure applications as well as many chemicals and corrosive materials. It is recommended to use a strong, sturdy primer and cement when installing schedule 40 pressure pipe. A standard medium set PVC glue is recommended for sizes up to 12” in diameter. When gluing pipe over 12” you should use a slow set glue to provide ample time in getting connections done properly and securely. Schedule 40 PVC pipe adheres to ASTM D 1784 and is ANSI, NSF 61 approved for potable water service.
