Back7.2.10.4.(2)

ATTRIBUTION:

Functional Statement:

F80

To resist deterioration resulting from expected service conditions.

Objective:

OH2.1, OH2.3

 

APPLICATION:

Mechanical couplings used for nonpressure applications, in drain and waste pipes, vent pipes and sewer pipes, in plumbing systems for buildings.

INTENT:

To limit the probability that performance of mechanical couplings will fall significantly below expectations, which could lead to failure of such couplings, which could lead to leakage, which could lead to unsanitary conditions, which could lead to harm to persons.
