Whether the purpose is to convey sanitary sewage or storm water, joints are designed so that when sections are laid together they will make a continuous line of pipe with an interior free from irregularities. Joints can be designed to provide soiltightness, or watertightness, with the ability to accommodate lateral or longitudinal movement, and strength to handle shear or vertical movement.
