What is Pitch Fibre?

Pitch fibre was a material developed in the 1940's...

Pitch fibre pipes are a type of drainage pipe that were widely used in the UK from around the 1940s to the 1970s. These pipes are made from a mixture of cellulose fibres, bitumen and resin which when mixed together and heated, it hardens and creates a pipe.

Pitch fibre pipes were commonly used for drainage and sewage systems, as well as for water mains. These pipes have a lifespan of around 30-40 years. However, over time, the bitumen and resin that holds the cellulose fibers together can deteriorate, causing the pipes to become brittle and prone to cracking or collapsing.

Today's stronger chemicals sometimes cause it to disintegrate, deform or de-laminate, and then the pipe starts to cause blockages on a regular basis. To remedy, it either needs digging up or replacing, or it is often possible for us to successfully mechanically re-round it without excavation and then conduct drain relining for a long-lasting solution!

They were very efficient in what was a miserable job, digging out a foul drain and un-blocking it, in cold rainy weather and removing a spirit level!!! and then leaving us after ensuring that everything was left as clean and tidy and as it was before the big dig started. I would have no hesitation in recommending them for a professional and personable service.”
