During the last decade, owners and engineers have become very conscious about design flows, infiltration and economy of buried pipeline systems with performance being the main consideration.
In this respect, one should pay meticulous attention to manufacturers’ qualifications since the quality and dimensional accuracy of pipe are entirely dependent upon the manufacturers’ equipment and quality control.
It is highly desirable that the Engineer conduct his own inspection of the manufacturer’s plant. His scrutiny of process, equipment, testing facilities, quality control, as well as more indefinable matters such as plant housekeeping and worker attitude, will reveal the quality of the pipe. Plant visits and inspection tours may be arranged through the local Sales Representative.
