How to Make a Ring Seal Joint
Check out Drainage Sales' instructional video on the process of making a Ring Seal Joint - with some tip on the best methods.
White Soil & Waste Systems are becoming ever more popular. They look neater when on show internally within a bathroom or utility room, avoiding the need for painting or building unsightly ducting within the room. But it is when white soil pipes are installed externally that they come into their own, offering a perfect match for waste pipes, white gutters and Plastic Fascias and Soffits.
Ring seal joints are the easiest to make - if you never done it before please take a minute to watch our quick video tutorial.
Made from durable PVC-U, there is no need to paint external soil pipes. The only aesthetic maintenance that will ever be required is an annual wipe down with soapy water to remove any dirt and grit.
All of our Soil and Waste systems are manufactured in the UK by Floplast to British/European Standards.
The system is fully compatible with our Underground Drainage System. It can also be joined to most other systems that are manufactured to British/European Standard. Connection can be made to Cast Iron and Clay Pipes using the SP140 adaptor (only available in Black and Grey).
The addition to the range of the External Air Admittance Valve in white means that there is now no longer any need for Soil & Vent Pipes to terminate above the level of the eaves. This cleverly designed fitting has quickly helped to make the installation of all external soil stacks both safer and easier by reducing the requirement for high ladders or scaffolding.
Silicon lubricant should always be used on all push fit joints to ensure a smooth a secure fit. We also recommend that access points are incorporated into any Soil and Vent system to allow the pipework to be easily maintained.
