I am an inspector on the construction of a large recreational facility. I work for an engineering firm who have been hired by a Town who owns the facility to oversee the Towns interest. We didnt design or engineer any part of the facility. Part of the design includes running a 200mm high pressure HDPE sanitary force main about a mile up an entrance road to tie into the Towns sanitary system. Included in the design are 4 cleanouts spaced along the forcemain. I have worked on a few construction projects involving sanitary force mains but none of these projects had cleanouts. The engineering firm who designed the force main is the mechanical engineer for the building and I don't think their forte is designing force mains. I was wondering if its the usual practise to have cleanouts on a HDPE forcemain?
