Buy a 110mm Rest Bend From EasyMerchant. 45 Degree and 90 Degree Available
EasyMerchant keeps a range of 110mm Rest Bends in stock, featuring both double and single socket options.
What is a Rest Bend?
Typically, they are long radius pipes with a 45 or 90 degree bend, usually situated at the base of a soil vent pipe or a drop shaft to access the drainage system. Most commonly fitted beneath a downstairs toilet, this specialist pipe features additional supports designed to help absorb the force of the flushed water as it flows to the main drain pipe. These fins, or supports, and their longer length, are the differences between a rest bend and a standard 110mm 90° or quarter bend pipe.
It’s suggested that all installations should be supported by a bed of concrete to promote the necessary support.
Each of the items in our range are supplied with a captive pre-lubricated ring seal and hold the British Standard kitemark BS-EN1401 certification. They will fit seamlessly with any other manufacturer or brand using the same BS accreditation within the drainage system.
Manufactured from heavy-duty PVC plastic, the advantages over older cast iron or clay drainage options are many. As well ease of manufacture, plastic offers lighter weight and easier production than a cast iron counterpart, and our 110mm option drainage pipe should offer a lifetime of problem-free operation.
Rest Bend Installation Tips
- Always apply the appropriate pipe lubricant around the seal of the socket.
- Use only a correctly chamfered 110mm PVC pipe manufactured to the correct specifications.
- Make sure sockets and spigots fit and seal as intended.
- Never use washing up detergents to seal joints.
- Ensure there are no sharp edges on any pipes and that all chamfers are prepared in the correct manner.
- Check for missing seals, damage or displacement.
If all the manufacturer instructions are followed properly, the installation should be fairly straightforward for most DIY experts, plumbers, builders, floor workers, gardeners or engineers. There should be no sign of water loss at any point of the system.
Always follow the guidelines set out by the Government in The Building Regulations 2010, Drainage and Waste Disposal – Approved Document H.
