Buy an Underground Drainage 160mm Rodding Eye Online Now
We supply every type of drainage product, and our 160mm Rodding Eye provides the same high-quality build as every other item in our range.
160mm pipe fittings are typically used for heavy-duty situations. The main area of installation is where domestic 110mm underground drainage pipes come together before entering the large mains or sewerage pipes. 160mm pipes offer a smoother flow for larger amounts of waste. They can also feature in your land drainage projects.
This rodding eye is supplied with a plain spigot entry point for a simple and straightforward installation.
What is a rodding eye?
A rodding eye is an access point that allows blockages to be cleared. The removable cover is set at a 45° angle to the ground access pipe. This access allows cleaning rods to be passed through and into the underground drainage up to the blockage to break it down.
We provide square or oval rodding eye covers in different sizes and materials for different project requirements. This product is supplied as an oval rodding eye, which conforms to the BS-EN1401 British Standard kitemark. As such, it will integrate with all other matching industry standard fittings.
Cleaning rods are flexible lengths of around 1m that can be joined together to achieve deep access to your pipe system. Using a slow prodding motion, the user should try to break the blockage into smaller pieces that the pipe can easily absorb. Harder, longer thrusts often only succeed in pushing the blockage further into the system.
Blockages can be caused due to a range of issues. Debris can build up over time depending on the location and waste the system is designed to release. In land drainage situations, the build-up could be down to leaves or other ground waste or refuse.
Rodding eye installation
We recommend that every part is double-checked and a trial run is carried out for any installation, just to make sure that all the components that are required are present.
You should always ensure that there is the correct amount of distance available to sit the rodding eye flush to the ground with the correct length of pipe to connect to the underground drainage. You may need a connector to manage any shortfall in distance.
