Texas municipalities have long been known for their use of trenchless installation methods. Engineers and contractors have been taking advantage of the social and economic benefits of trenchless installation for many years. Until 2004, the primary pipe material used for trenchless applications in water, sewer and water reuse projects was high-density polyethylene (HDPE). With the introduction of Fusible PVC® pipe, owners, design engineers and contractors now have the alternative of a thermally butt-fused PVC pipe system with all of the advantages and familiarity of AWWA C900/C905 PVC pipe. With PVC pipe already widely used in many utility systems, Fusible PVC® pipe allows utilities to maintain material continuity when constructing trenchless installations or direct bury applications requiring a fused thermoplastic pipe system.
