PIPING CODES AND STANDARDS BASIC INFORMATION


The use of piping for plumbing, fire protection, and for the transport of hazardous materials may be subject to the provisions of a code and/or to those of local, state, federal, or other regulations.

All the major model plumbing codes which have become adopted, or referenced, by state and local jurisdictions permit and prescribe to a varying but fairly extensive degree the use of plastics piping for hot-cold water lines; water services; drain, waste, and vents (DWV); sewerage; and drainage.

Plastics piping is also covered by other codes, such as the following which are of interest to industrial users:

American National Standards Institute Codes

ANSI B31.3 Chemical Plant and Petroleum Refinery Piping
