Drainage Systems have a lot to deal with. Not only does the piping have to be strong enough to withstand large potentials of water, they also need to be able to transport sewerage. Made up from a mixture of waste from the household and industrial outlets, sewage contains a multitude of not-very-nice gases, including:
- Carbon Dioxide
- Sulphur Dioxide
Even in low concentrations, sewer gases can be problematic not only because they don’t smell very pleasant, but also because they can cause some problems on your health – often without you even realising it. Not only that, but the gases can also cause a lot of damage to buildings.
At Howarth Timber & Building Supplies we stock gas membranes for the prevention of gases passing into structures by creating a barrier.
Gas membranes are ideal for dealing with complex areas, and can be installed easily as they dry incredibly quickly.
