Yeah I have to agree poly pipe is a ghost online when it comes to ratings.

Though when my dad used to own a Mitre 10 and he stocked the stuff it did say on the pipe it was pressure rated but not to how much.

I would imagine it's for high pressure irrigation so I wouldn't be surprised.

I would think it would also tear like ABS and not schrapnel like PVC but 200psi seems to be pushing it, I'm not sure.

16 bar my friend,but it also is available upto pressure rating of 22 bar,but the run of the mill stuff you can easily get is 16 bar.

I can double check with my uncle if you insist.
