OUR STORY

Specified Pipe are dedicated manufacturers’ representatives for Diamond Plastics and have a single purpose: to improve the understanding and use of PVC pipe. We are singularly focused on the use of segmented, gasketed PVC pipe for buried water and wastewater applications, such as:

  • Potable water transmission
  • Potable water distribution
  • Gravity collection & conveyance of sanitary & storm sewer
  • Force mains
  • Agricultural canal & ditch enclosure
  • Reclaimed water transmission & distribution

PVC Pipe is North America’s leading choice for buried, wet infrastructure. Utah State University’s Buried Structures Laboratory’s latest study once again determined PVC Pipe has the “lowest overall failure rate”. PVC Pipe expected to have a service life to easily exceeding 100 years.

At Specified Pipe we know that by the proper specification and installation of gasketed PVC pipe we are contributing to long lasting and truly sustainable infrastructure for generations to come.

Diamond Plastics has been producing gasketed joint PVC pipe for buried water and wastewater infrastructure since 1982. Being North America’s leader in PVC pipe product development, Diamond Plastics has responded to the market by investing in increasing the range of diameters and pressure ratings available.

Diamond Plastics manufactures only PVC pipe utilizing the Rieber gasketed joint, because of its:

  • Durability – lowest failure rate of pipe materials makes PVC truly sustainable
  • Ease of installation – no special equipment or training required
  • Corrosion free, no liners or coatings – eliminating extra initial expense, added care during installation, inspection costs and/or ongoing maintenance costs
  • Watertight joints – gasketed pipe is the most universally accepted method of joining buried pipelines with a long successful history
  • Smooth surface low friction – reducing pumping operational costs and smaller pipes when compared to other pipe materials with higher friction
  • Longevity – an unmatched long standing proven history of success

PVC pipe is the superior cost-effective choice when considering the factors above, along with initial cost per foot of pipe and the total installation cost.

Diamond Plastics PVC pipe is made in America at seven strategically located production facilities.

Diamond Plastics produces PVC pipe:

  • 4” thru 60” AWWA C900 pressure pipe, in a wide range of pressure ratings
  • 4” thru 60” ASTM F679 non-pressure pipe, available in various pipe stiffnesses
  • AWWA C900 restrained joint pipe thru 24”
  • PIP pipe for irrigation thru 27”

Diamond Plastics technical staff are members of industry committees of ASTM, AWWA and HSB. And Diamond Plastics is a member of The Uni-Bell PVC Pipe Association.
