Objective:

OP5

 

APPLICATION:

Use of polyethylene water pipe in buildings.

INTENT:

To limit the probability that polyethylene water pipe [and associated fittings] will be used for a purpose other than as a water service pipe [e.g. hot water service], which could lead to the failure of the pipe or associated fittings due to the inability of the pipe material to withstand service conditions, which could lead to leakage or flooding, which could lead to damage to the building or facility.
