What fall on an underground soil pipe?
What gradient should underground soil pipe be laid to?
What angle should underground soil pipe be?
We get asked these types of questions a lot, and the answer is always “it should meet the specifications for purpose as per the Building Regulations”. This is not a lawyers answer, it is as it says, it must be per the regs.
Now you may ask, OK so what is the required fall? Just tell me the answer please. The correct fall for drainage and soil pipe depends on various factors, such as how many houses will it be connected to, flow rate in terms of litres etc.
If you get the soil pipe fall or gradient wrong then the liquid could flow too slowly or flow too fast, either way the result could be solids not being carried away with the liquid.
Do you want your underground soil pipe to end up blocking up? Of course the answer is no you don’t want your soil pipe blocking up or constantly having issues with the soil pipe. Therefore our best advice is when dealing with underground soil pipe installation or relocation, always use a plumbing and drainage professional, and let them consider all the factors and then design your system to the Building Regulations and let them design a system that will give you piece of mind and years of trouble free use.
