Pitch Fibre Repairs

Pitch Fibre Repairs

What is it?

Pitch fibre repairs address issues in drainage pipes made from pitch fibre, a material used extensively from the 1950s to the 1970s. Over time, these pipes can deform, blister, and collapse due to the softening of the pitch material. The repair process often involves re-rounding the pipe to its original shape and then applying a structural liner to reinforce and stabilise the pipe’s interior, restoring its function without the need to excavate and replace the entire pipe.

Without timely repairs, affected pipes can lead to significant drainage problems, including blockages, leaks, and even environmental damage. Property owners can avoid the substantial cost and disruption of replacing their drainage system by opting for pitch fibre repairs, ensuring it remains functional and reliable for years to come.
