PVC Well Casing

ASTM D1785:

Specification for polyvinyl chloride plastic pipe, schedule 40, 80, and 120


This specification covers PVC pipe in schedule 40, 80, and 120 for pressure applications. This system is intended for pressure applications where the operating temperature will not exceed 140 F.

ASTM F480:

Specification for thermoplastic well casing pipe and couplings made in standard dimension ratios, schedule 40 and schedule 80


This specification covers water well casing pipe and coupling made from thermoplastic material in standard dimension ratios, schedule 40 and schedule 80.


PVC well casing is primarily used to line wells for drinking water. Like other PVC piping systems, it is intended for applications where temperatures will not exceed 140 F. PVC well casing is a robust piping material designed and tested to withstand the collapsing pressure associated with underground well installation.
