          Could be that he is thinking of SDR-35 ASTM D-3034 sewer pipe. I have had contractors refer to that as Sch30 before.

              Unless things have changed over the years DWV PVC and Sch 40 PVC are the same exact pipe just labeled differently. The fittings however are different.

                Nope not SDR35.

                It is SCH30 Pvc. It's thin walled and junk IMO. It has no business being underground and definitely not 8' deep and being used as a perm. drain.

                Entire system is failing around three condo units.

                  They call it "Thin Wall" PVC-DWV pipe & fittings.

                      If there is a max it may be listed in the Standard. Some local amendments prohibit it's use so check locally.

                          I work at a place that has a mix of SRD35 and SCH30 and lets just say I always have work out there when it gets slow. To me, nither one should be in the gound at any depth. I have a picture I`ll post when I get to the shop this morning of the SCH30 at around 6`deep.

                            I've layed miles of SDR35 and never failed a deflection test. It's really not bad pipe as long as it's properly bedded and compacted.

                            Only time I have put SCH30 in the ground is in leach fields 14" deep and I still think thats too deep.

                              Gene, I'm with all clear on this one. I've seen too much of that sdr35 pvc egged out and distorted in ways I'd never have though possible. May well be a case of crap installation w/o bedding and compaction, but I just don't see sch40 that needs dug up anywhere near as often as I see sdr35 that needs dug up.

                              I never even knew sch 30 existed until this thread. If you think sdr35 is ok, and sch 30 is junk, I sure know where I stand on sch 30.
