A brief overview of the potential problems that may occur due to having pitch fibre pipe work as your drainage system.

Pitch fibre is made of wood cellulose fibre impregnated with carefully refined inert coal tar pitch, under vacuum and pressure (about 25% fibre to 75% pitch by weight).

Pitch fibre pipes were once considered as an ideal solution for for drainage systems. This was due to the fact that they were much cheaper and also much easier to handle than the traditional clay pipes. Pitch Fibre Pipe work was used extensively in the 1960's and then it's popularity gradually began to decline.
It's important to use very high standard drainage material, combined with expert knowledge to ensure excellent quality drainage systems.

Pitch fibre pipe work is a very poor drainage material to use, this is due to the fact that pitch fibre pipe work has a limited and somewhat uncertain life span. It is difficult to say how long it will last as each run is different.

Although pitch fibre pipe work was considered suitable for foul drains and sewers, it was not considered suitable for drains running large amounts of hot water or for wastes containing pitch solvents such as fats, petrol, oil etc.
Somerset Drainage Specialists have encountered numerous different problems that can occur with pitch fibre pipe work, which has been used for foul drainage.
  Here are a few examples of these problems:
1. Over time the pipe work can deteriorate due to its age, weakening weight stress, being laid poorly also and chemical erosion.

2. Pitch fibre pipe work is prone to deterioration from within as blistering may occur which cause obstructions and eventually result in the pipe closing up.

3. Leaking pipe work can attract tree and shrub roots which results in further damage to the pipe work.

4. The pipe work can become porous, which allows water to seep out. As a result of this the subsoil that surrounds the pipe is washed away causing subsidence.

5. The normal forms of pipe maintenance that are carried out on pitch fibre pipe work may actually cause further damage due to its delicate nature.
