Proper installation is fundamental to ensuring the performance of all pipe products. The following illustrations show some suggestions for installing Logan Clay pipe. For more information, contact us or refer to ASTM C 12.

Step 1

Dig bell or coupling holes
before pipe is laid. The hole should be just deep enough to run your fingers under the entire bell after the pipe is laid.

Step 2

Clean bell and spigot, including the O-ring groove.

Step 3

Equalize the tension in the O-ring by running a screwdriver or smooth tool completely around the spigot under the O-ring.

Step 4

Lubricate both the spigot and socket ends liberally to allow pipe to slide home. Make sure the gasket is in place by running your fingers completely around the assembled joint.

Step 5

If a bar is used to shove the pipe home, use a block of wood to cushion the bell.

Step 6

Shovel-slice bedding material into the pipe haunches (not under the bell) for the entire length of the pipe to ensure uniform support.

Installation Guidelines

"Forty percent of our system is clay...We televised these lines based on the original risk equation, which indicated that due to age, these should be our areas of most significant risk. But they haven't degraded at all over time. Based on the way these pipes look they could easily last 200, 300 or 400 years."
