Marley Plumbing and Drainage have provided their soil and waste system for hundreds of en-suite shower pods at ‘The Summit’ student accommodation in Leicester.
Marley’s Technical Manager, Neil Carter, said: “The space available in the main service riser behind the bathroom pods is very tight and we therefore provided the contractor with detailed drawings indicating how the connections could be made; as well as helping them with the design and material schedule.”
“After the pods had been craned into position, the toilet and other waste pipes are left protruding into the riser and required connecting to the stacks. The revamped Marley collar boss was ideal for this situation because it offers such flexibility.”
The eight-way soil manifold offered the flexibility of four top and side entries, allowing for multiple inlet connections.
At just 70mm above the floor slab, the eight-way collar boss is compact and unobtrusive, sitting at finished floor level.
The design prevents cross-flow by allowing multiple low-level bath or shower waste pipes to be connected to the stack above floor level.
The unique SCBL41 option benefits from a 530mm spigot tail, making it quicker to install as the tail fits directly through the slab to connect to a push-fit socket below the ceiling.
For added reassurance of quality, all parts are pressure tested to ensure maximum joint security.
In addition to the eight-way boss, H Malone is making use of a variety of solvent weld and push-fit connections to allow for flexibility of movement.
