Standards: The PlastiDrain system is manufactured to the highest possible standards and where relevant is manufactured in accordance with BS 4660: 2000 and BS EN 1401-1: 1998 which specifies the requirements for underground pipes and fittings in sizes 110mm and160mm.

In addition the PlastiDrain system has been independently assessed by the British Board of Agrément and has been awarded an Agrément Certificate No 86/1648. pipes may be protected using a 150mm thick reinforced concrete surround with allowance for flexibility at pipe joints. blockages do occur from time to time and the pipeline will need to be cleared.

Pipes laid in as dug subsoil suitable as bedding material* Pipes laid in subsoil unsuitable as bedding material which does not puddle when walked on. Dumpers and other vehicles should not be driven along the trench as a means of compaction. This should continue until a minimum thickness of 300mm has been placed over the pipe.

c) Align components and push home fully. a) Ensure both pipe end and sealing ring are clean. An air test is usually more convenient but an excessive drop in pressure may be due to a change in temperature. defective apparatus or failure in the pipeline. The push-fit joint allows for some angular deflection giving ease of installation whilst allowing for subsequent ground movement. a) Mark the pipe. or by means of reinforced bridging slabs of adequate strength. 5 Jointing:2 Handling:● Pipes should never be thrown from lorries. If extra leverage is required to push home the spigot. b) Lubricate both pipe end and sealing ring. Ensure that the first layer is raised off the ground.Sitework and Installation Instructions It is important that good care is taken on site to prevent unnecessary wastage of materials and time and for the prevention of problems after laying thus causing delay and additional expense.co. b) The cut end should be chamfered to approx 15° for half the pipe wall thickness and deburred with a sharp tool. use a timber block at the trailing end to prevent damage. Should this occur a water test is recommended so that the leakage can be assessed and located.
