Water operators learn all about concrete pressure pipe in this training DVD, part of the five-DVD Pipe Profile Series.
There are four basic types of concrete pressure pipe covered in Cocnrete Pressure Pipe: prestressed concrete cylinder pipe, reinforced concrete steel cylinder pipe, reinforced concrete non-cylinder pipe, and bar-wrapped cylinder pipe. A concrete coating and lining is combined with steel reinforcement to utilize the best properties of both materials.  The concrete and mortar provide natural corrosion protection to the steel and its high compressive strength provides the rigidity to carry significant external loads when proper bedding and backfill are used.

The DVD illustrates the characteristics of concrete pressure pipe used in water supply. Areas of discussion include:

• Advantages, disadvantages, and concerns
• Thermal effects and weathering
• Guideline for proper transportation, receiving, unloading, inspection, and storage
• Working characteristics
• Basic installation procedures and considerations
• Bedding and backfill requirements
• Basic pipe repair
• Maintenance, testing, and record-keeping
All information in Concrete Pressure Pipe is based on related AWWA Standards and AWWA Manuals of Water Supply Practices--your assurance of current, water industry-approved information.
