Technical Specification for the WaterMark Certification Scheme

This Technical Specification sets out requirements for plastics bodied fittings with intermediate flexible joints for sewer or drain applications. These fittings are for use above or below ground and intended to be used where the pipeline is operating under gravity flow and the operating pressure is low.

The proposed revisions for the 2023 version include the following: -

(i) Scope expansion to include fittings from existing limitation of DN225 to DN300

(ii) Deletion of compression strength and addition of tear strength within Table 5.1.

(iii) Additional marking requirements included.

(iv) General update in several areas due to changes to referenced standards since the initial issue (2016)

(v) Inclusion of compliance Tables A3 and A4

Note:- Only comments relating to the proposed changes as highlighted within the draft document will be considered.
