Abstract : The use of FRP pipe for water well applications was investigated. A test program and test procedures were developed due to the unavailability of uniform test methods for plastic pipe for this application. The apparatus necessary for the test program, including long and short term tension tests as well as biaxial, point and uniform load compression tests and combinations of these tests, was constructed and the tests performed on commercially available plastic pipe from several manufacturers. The results of these tests allow comparisons of the physical properties of the nine manufacturers' pipe tested. These data are compiled in such a manner that they can be utilized to design an optimum well system for any particular installation.
