ASTM F2561 - 11 Standard Practice for Rehabilitation of a Sewer Service Lateral and Its Connection to the Main Using a One Piece Main and Lateral Cured-in-Place Liner


Source: ASTM International

This practice is for use by designers and specifiers, regulatory agencies, owners, and inspection organizations who are involved in the rehabilitation of sewer service laterals and its connection to the main through the use of a resin-impregnated tube installed within an existing sewer lateral. As for any practice, modifications may be required for specific job conditions.

1. Scope

1.1 This practice covers requirements and test methods for the reconstruction of a sewer service lateral pipe having an inner diameter of 3 to 12 in. and its connection to the main pipe having an inner diameter of 6 to 24 in. without excavation. The lateral pipe is accessed remotely from the main pipe and from a lateral cleanout. This will be accomplished by the installation of a resin impregnated one-piece main and lateral cured in-place lining (MLCIPL) by means of air or water inflation and inversion. The MLCIPL is pressed against the host pipe by pressurizing a bladder and is held in place until the thermoset resins have cured. When cured, the MLCIPL shall be a continuous, one piece, tight fitting, corrosion resistant lining extending over a predetermined length of the lateral pipe and the adjacent section of the main pipe providing a verifiable non-leaking structural connection and seal.

1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as the standard. The values given in parentheses are provided for information only.

1.3 There is no similar or equivalent ISO Standard.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety and health practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. Particular attention is drawn to those safety regulations and requirements involving entering into and working in confined spaces.
