Signs of a Pitch Fibre Pipe Problem

Without being able to physically stick your head inside a drain pipe, it can be challenging to know if you have a pitch fibre pipe that needs to be repaired. However, there are a few early signs that if noticed, can prevent further damage to any drains or pipes.

Pitch fibre pipes have an estimated useful lifecycle of 40 years. After this period of time, the pipes start to go through a process of delamination which weakens the integrity of the pipe and makes them more prone to damage or collapse. 

If you would like professional drainage engineers to safely and efficiently find the cause and location of your pitch fibre drain problem, District Drain Solutions uses a camera to undertake CCTV drain surveys whether you are a homeowner or run a business.

Identifying the Cause of Your Pitch Fibre Pipe Issues

The first step our expert drainage engineers take is to identify why your pitch fibre pipe needs to be repaired. This is essential to ensure that the pitch fibre pipe repair solution we provide is the most effective and long-lasting. Once we have located the issue, we will provide you with a fixed price quote so that there are no hidden surprises.

Most common causes of a needing a pitch fibre pipe repair may include:

  • Delamination: this happens in pitch fibre pipes when age, chemicals, high temperatures, or too much weight puts pressure on the pipes and causes the layers to separate and weaken, causing blockages.
  • Build-up of grease and fat: this is commonly found in kitchen sinks as grease and fat can solidify and stick to the inside of pipes. Over time, this build-up will narrow the pipe diameter and cause a blockage.
  • Tree roots: tree roots tend to grow where moisture is like your drains. Particularly when the pipes weaken and start to leak, these roots can grow into pipes, causing cracks and blockages.
  • Flushing of non-biodegradable items: nappies, sanitary products, wet wipes, and cotton buds should never be flushed down the toilet as they will not break down and will cause a blockage.
  • Build-up of scale: this is commonly found in older properties as the scale is a by-product of hard water. Over time, it will build upon the inside of pipes and cause a blockage.


Any of these causes, when left unattended, can result in a blocked drain. That’s why it’s crucial to have your drains regularly cleaned and unblocked by a professional drainage company.

Clearing Your Blocked Drains

Once you have agreed to our experts’ quote, we will get to work on clearing your blocked drainage. Depending on how severe the drain blockage issue is, we may use one or more of the following methods:

  • Drain jetting: this is a high-pressure water jetting system that is used to clear blockages and clean drains. It involves inserting a hose into the drain and blasting the blockage with water.
  • Root cutters: these are used to cut through tree roots that have grown into the pipe.
  • Drain rodding: this is a simple but effective way of clearing blockages. A steel rod is inserted into the drain and used to clear the blockage.
  • CCTV drain survey: this is a comprehensive drain survey that uses the latest technology to assess the condition of your drains.


Once we have cleared the drainage, we will carry out a full drain cleaning service to ensure that your drains are flowing freely.

Preventing Future Drain Blockages

Once we have cleared your drains, we will provide you with advice on how to prevent future drain blockages. This includes advice on what not to flush down the toilet and how to maintain your drains.

Unblocking Drains FAQs

Pitch fibre pipes are made from wood cellulose, combined with inert coal tar pitch. They were considered a more cost effective, lightweight alternative to clay pipes. 

Pitch fibre pipes are commonly found on properties built between the 1950s and 1970s.

Over time, pitch fibre pipes start to delaminate. This means the layers start to separate which can cause water to leak or plant roots to infiltrate the pipes. High temperatures can also cause the tar to soften which causes the pipes to weaken. The best way to check the pitch fibre pipes is to have one of our engineers conduct a drainage survey.
