Shallow Drain

Dealing with a shallow drain that had cracked.

If you have seen the movie ‘Shallow Grave’ that was filmed in Glasgow in the early 90’s you will know the premise of the move and the reason for the title being that the flat mates, trying to get away with things, dug the grave too shallow.

Thankfully in our case we weren’t dealing with a shallow grave, rather a shallow drain pipe.

A customer had a cracked drain pipe that required excavating.  When we dug up the the pipe, we found that it was only 40cm under the surface.  Why is this an issue?  Because main pipes should be AT LEAST 75cm below the ground to protect them from frost.  Something that happens quite a lot in the winter in Glasgow.  By digging the pipe deeper, the warmer soil protects the pipe from the ground frost.  But in this case, the pipe had been installed by another plumber incorrectly.  Because of that, the pipe has cracked.
