Pitch Fibre Drain Pipe

What is a Pitch Fibre Drain?

Pitch fibre drain pipes are an inferior and poor-standard form of drainage that was introduced as a cheaper option in the 1950s to 1970s. You will often find pitch fibre pipes in schools, hospitals and housing estates built in this period. We recommend checking to see if you are using this type of pipe and get them replaced or repaired. As a result, you will avoid a more serious and expensive problem down the line. Here are some of the problems caused by pitch fibre pipes, and how these issues can be sorted.

What are the most common issues with Pitch Fibre Drains?

One of the problems caused by pitch fibre pipes is their lifespan, which is around 40 years. After that, they can easily collapse and become misshapen due to their cheap and lightweight design. The internal wall of a Pitch fibre pipe becomes deformed with continuous exposure to water, and as a result, this will regularly cause blocked drains. As your drainage system carries waste and water, this is a major problem! This problem is made even worse when oils, fats, chemicals and high-temperature fluid is passed through the pipe.

Is there a ‘Non-Dig’ method?

Indeed, there is.

Here at West Wales Waste, we are using the most up to date equipment to avoid excavation, saving you time and money. After a quick assessment to detect any deformed pitch fibre pipe, we can get right to work using our re rounding tool to re-open and reshape it. This will allow us to install a drain liner to re-strengthen the pipe and prevent any further damage moving forward. This avoids the need to dig up your property!
