There are many buildings across the country, including in Brighton, that have pipework made from pitch fibre. This is an old-fashioned method that can sometimes lead to problems, which is why new pipes tend to be manufactured from plastic. If your home or commercial property has pitch fibre drains, then our drainage experts here at No1 PHD can replace them.

Rest assured that all of our technicians are experienced and certified to carry out any project related to your pitch fibre drains.

Pitch fibre drains are rarely used when new properties are built, with plastic being the favoured alternative. In the 1950s and 1970s, however, many drainage networks were built with pitch fibre as they were deemed cheaper compared to clay pipes. They were also lightweight and more cost-effective than other options.
When constructed, asbestos was used to strengthen the pipes, but it is well known in today’s era that this substance can affect human health if exposed. More often than not, the pipes are harmless as they were bound within coal tar pitch, so if it stays within the pipework, asbestos cannot cause problems.
The main issue with pitch fibre drains, though, is the fact that they are more likely to suffer general wear and tear and are more susceptible to damage. For your peace of mind, you should enlist our pitch fibre drain services in Brighton as we can inspect their condition and replace them your drainage pipes if necessary.
When you find out that your premises has pitch fibre drains, you should contact a member of our No1 PHD team. For pitch fibre drain repairs and replacement, Brighton clients have come to the right place! We are specialists when it comes to all drainage problems, including dealing with blocked drains and other specialist drain services such as drain relining.
If your issue is related to pitch fibre drains, then we can inspect the condition to see if they require replacing. Rest assured that they are perfectly safe if in good condition, but if damage has occurred, we may need to carry out drain excavation work to remove and replace them. This will involve our local drain digging professionals either excavating a hole or a trench to find the affected pipes and replace them.
Absolutely blown away by the service we received. Took all the stress out of losing our heating and hot water. Highly recommended!

It isn’t necessary for pitch fibre drains to be completely replaced if the damage is minor. Our technicians in Brighton can offer two drain repair options, with one being drain lining. This will involve inserting a protective lining into the interior of the pipes, which will strengthen the quality of them. In fact, it will be as if the pipes are brand new, allowing waste water to flow through as normal.
In Brighton, we also offer patch lining services, which will target specific areas of damage and cover it so that the cracks or tears don’t progress into anything more serious. The best course of action will be decided by our on-site professionals once we have inspected the condition of the drains.
There is no doubt that replacing your pitch fibre drains is more disruptive than a repair as it requires a certain level of digging. It may be beneficial for you to have this service, as we can fit new heavy duty modern piping that will last much longer than the pitch fibre drains of old.

After noticing that the house was unusually cold, we found that the heating wasn’t coming on and that our hot water had also failed. We called the team at No 1 PHD who dispatched an engineer to investigate. After discovering that the culprit was a faulty boiler part, they ordered in a new part and got it fitted as quickly as possible. The guys were great, and we couldn’t be happier.
For days, we’ve noticed a foul smell coming from outside and a gurgling sound coming from one of the drains. Whenever it would rain, the area around it would flood slightly and take ages to drain. We tried buying drain unblockers, but none seemed effective. Eventually, we turned to No 1 PHD and were left wondering why we didn’t do this sooner.
