PART 3 EXECUTION
3.1 Install materials in accordance with manufacturer's recommendations and the California Plumbing Code (CPC).
3.2 Piping and fittings shall be free of internal dirt and extraneous material when installed, and shall be protected against entry of dirt and extraneous material during and after installation.
3.3 Excavations. Excavations shall be shored in accordance with all Federal OSHA and State OSHA regulations. Bottoms of trenches shall have a minimum of 4" sand bed under bottom of pipe. Excavations shall be dry immediately before piping is installed and shall be dry when pressure tests are performed. Backfill of trenches shall be compacted to 95% in lifts of 12". Install digging ribbon tape and an electrically continuous trace wire 12" above all buried piping.
3.4 Piping shall be installed straight. Joints shall be aligned within tolerance specified by no-hub coupling manufacturer. Piping shall be installed parallel and perpendicular to walls, except where indicated otherwise on plans. Piping shall be routed as near to walls and ceilings as practical, and grouped together as practical, to maximize available space for other uses.
3.5 No-hub couplings shall be tightened to manufacturer's recommendations with a torque wrench.
3.6 Piping shall be sloped to drain in accordance with the CPC, generally 1/4" per foot. Piping shall be pressure tested with water in accordance with the CPC. Provide sufficient notice to Owner's inspector to inspect and verify these requirements before covering the pipe.
3.7 Install top of floor cleanouts, floor drains, floor sinks and shower drains flush with finished floor. Tolerance: + 0" higher, - 1/8" lower. Install top of ground cleanouts flush with finished pavement or surrounding unfinished grade, same tolerance. Mark cleanouts at unfinished grade with a welded-on rod and flag, or as directed by the Owner's representative.
3.8 Exposed piping shall be painted to match adjacent material's finish. Concealed sanitary sewer and vent piping shall not be painted.
3.9 Piping passing through fire-rated walls, floors, ceilings or roofs shall be protected as required to maintain fire rating.
