More Information on 160mm Drainage Pipe:

EasyMerchant's 160mm underground drainage pipe (6 inch) is for use with sewerage and underground drainage pipe systems for gravity based waste water drainage. It may be installed to depths up to 10 metres and is appropriate for both domestic and industrial solutions.

Inspection chambers, and gully grids are made from polypropylene. All 160mm drainage pipes and fittings, such and bends and junctions, are made in brown (terracotta) unless otherwise stated. The system is based around the "ring seal" system (usually found at the socket of the bend or length). A pipe lubricant will be used around the seal of the socket of the fitting and a properly chamfered pipe in the proper diameter, then the plain end of the bend will be put to the socket of the fitting.

This is a procedure that's easy, but issues can occur when these instructions are not adhered to! Don't use fairy liquid to lubricate the drain seals, and always ensure that the pipe is chamfered without any sharp edges. Check that the seal isn't damaged, has been displaced and has not fallen out.

Whilst the majority of the underground drainage pipe products made from different substances are no longer used for this particular program, clay sewer drain products are still created in the United Kingdom and it's still favoured by some fitters, though it isn't as easy to work with as the PVC pipe is, as it needs power tools to install.

With long working life spans, and joints that are significantly stronger, PVC sewer pipe function is a lot lighter than clay is. A lot easier to install and it's also much simpler to cut for the surface water drainage contractor - and you will have the ability to construct an entire sewage drain system with bends through to manhole inspection chambers and covers using this identical substance. How it is installed, as well as the pipe bedding that is used are as important as such pipes may be more prone to leakage if not setup to the specification or to tree root ingress and deformity. In this scenario surface water pipe systems, and underground sewer systems (a sewer or foul sewer) is an underground pipe method for transporting sewage and rainwater in the house and/or business buildings (although perhaps not stormwater) to sewage disposal centers. It shouldn't used for above ground level purposes as it doesn't include any UV stabiliser (a costly additive to PVC) and therefore it can quickly fade in sunlight.

Here at EasyMerchant we highly advise you pick up a sewer pipe drain system that is Kitemarked and made to BS EN 1401 Standards.

The pipes provided are saved in stillages, bound within timber frame components. It's recommended that stillages of ninety are moved using a forklift or similar, and are saved piled at no more than three high. Accompanying fittings are supplied in boxes and should be kept away from direct sunlight. If stored outdoors, the boxes should be opened to prevent any temperature or heat issues or condensation.

The sewerage system offers an efficient method of eliminating waste water and foul water release from over floor drainage. The drain range includes many diverse bends, couplings, gullies (for example, a bottle gully, and a rear inlet gully) traps, and inspection chambers / accessibility chambers that easily integrate with EasyMerchant's array of below and above ground drainage which will accommodate most installations.

Manufactured in PVC-U to deliver a strong and durable solution, that is easy and lightweight. It's suitable for waste water collection in addition to foul water and raw sewage.
