Tech/Engineering - Engineering (general) / Peru // sewer system
Spanish term or phrase: PUL
There is a header on a chart pertaining to the measure of pipes used in a sewage system that read:

N_DIAMETRO_PUL

Other headers in the same chart read "Diameter in Millimeters" and "Diameter Code"

There seems to be nothing in the very long document that I am now finishing the translation of that gives a hint as to what "PUL" stands for here.

Thank you.
