Marley Plumbing and Drainage have provided a selection of their Underground and Quantum systems to create the foul and stormwater networks on a housing contract in Cinque Port of Hythe.
The Site Manager for subcontractor GSE Civil Engineering, Matt Roots, said: “All of the house drainage, down to a depth of two and a half metres is being laid using Marley’s underground system."
“We have employed it for a large number of projects in the past and find it very easy to work with. The system offers the full range of bends and other fittings you need, and we receive excellent technical support from the manufacturer. Actually laying the runs is very simple also and because of the national distribution network through leading merchants, we can always get hold of deliveries quickly.”
Marley’s Quantum Sewer range, made from a structured wall construction in PVCu, delivers the flexibility to tolerate ground movement without damage, whilst withstanding the effects of backfill and loading. The large diameter pipes require fewer joints, which reduces the likelihood of leaks and blockages.
The Marley underground drainage range offers a range of standard fittings including bends, gullies, branches and couplings. This solid wall system range is predominantly for round the house drainage, all manufactured in accordance with BS EN 1401:1999 and BBA 88/1977 certifications.
The orders placed with Drain Center for the site included manholes and covers to be installed local to the dwellings, along with the gullies and gratings to take the discharge from rainwater downpipes.
While the collector drains were all laid in 110 mm diameter pipework, the main runs of Quantum structured wall pipe increased to 150 mm diameter. A full selection of bends and other accessories such as rodding eyes were also supplied.
