On a 20 mile 42″ line I rig welded on with the 70XX requirements the welding contractor had me qualified with a a full pen 5P, 6″, 6g qualification examined to D1.

Welding the inside lap joint on a 36″ line would not be a job I would care to volunteer for, at least not for an extended period of time- it gets a little cramped in there for me. All the other waterlines I worked required a 1″ unlimited overhead and vertical weld test with backup strip, 4 side bends to D1.

There are several guys on this forum with such experience who might be looking for work, I’ve heard most of their work is slow untill after the new year so they migh be available. He swears by it, as you know, most rig welders prefer to avoid wire.

As I have recently completed inspection on a storm water pumping station with AWWA listed as the ruling code, I will say I was suprised that the code offered little guidance.
