Plastic drainage systems are popular because they are light weight and easy to use, as well as offering flexibility and strength. Plastic is also able to transport water through land that has been contaminated.
Under British Law, materials used for underground drainage must need specific standards, and different standards are set out for each type of material. They are produced by the BSI Group, who aim to ensure that British companies create and/or use products that are fully suitable for the job. As technology and needs change, standards can also change to keep up, therefore it is important to keep up-to-date with current standards.
The most common standards that you might need to know are:
BS EN 1401: Plastics piping systems for non-pressure underground drainage and sewerage.
BS EN 1852: Plastics piping systems for non-pressure underground drainage and sewerage.
Howarth Timber & Building Supplies have a wide range of products - that fit all of the necessary British standards - to offer both in store and online.
