• Install TYCO CPVC Pipe and Fittings according to this Installation
• Follow recommended safe work practices.
• Make certain that any materials coming in contact with TYCO CPVC Pipe and Fittings are chemically compatible with BLAZEMASTER CPVC. (See Notice located on Page 55, Chemical Compatibility section.)
• If painting is required, use only latex based paints.
• Keep pipe and fittings in original packaging until needed and away from sources of heat.
• If stored outdoors, cover the pipe and fittings with an opaque tarp.
• Follow proper handling procedures.
• Inspect TYCO CPVC Pipe and Fittings for damage before installation.
• Use tools specifically designed for use with CPVC pipe and fittings.
