I noticed on a set of plans that the engineer is calling for 8" PVC solvent welded pipe for an underground sewer service line for an industry. I confirmed that he meant this on purpose and asked him what the thinking was, since bell and spigot joints seem to be more common for this diameter. A 4" glued PVC service line I could understand, but 8" seemed unusual. I have not heard back. Anyone shed some light on this. Have you run into glue pipe for sewer service connections in larger diameters before? Is the thought that they would "never" leak?
