Made from Vienite – ACO’s polymer concrete material with recycled content – ACO RainDrain is described as the ideal system to complete a sleek and modern garden. Each individual channel fits with a simple interlocking system, which allows for a quick and easy installation. Its enhanced V-shaped profile also ensures a faster flow of water to minimise silt build-up.
RAINWATER CALCULATOR TOOL
Installers can quickly estimate the right rainwater system for a project with the Aliaxis Rainwater Calculator tool. Available exclusively for its Hunter Plastics and Marley Plumbing & Drainage customers, simply select the chosen gutter and downpipe profile, input the length of gutter required, the number of angles and outlets, and the height of the building. To access the tool for either brand visit the links below:
The BPF Pipes Group has published a new guide which summarises where, what and how many access points are required for the construction of drains and sewers. ‘Selection and installation of plastic inspection chambers for underground drain and sewer systems,’ is available to download by using the rdr.link below.

From post-box red and deep teal to bright pink and sunshine yellow, the new colours are available on the 112mm Half Round, Surefit 125 and 114mm Squareflo units – all manufactured to meet British Standards.
PUSH FIT DRAINAGE
It’s the multi-layer technology in Polypipe Building Services’ Terrain Q that provides resistance to attack from UV radiation, fire and impact damage. The polypropylene, easy-to-install push fit system, also exhibits high stability, noise insulation and fire resistance, as well as high chemical and abrasion resistance and to high temperature waste of up to 97ºC.
Purpose-designed with acoustics in mind, the Marley dBlue acoustic soil drainage system is proven to reduce noise to 10dB at 2 l/s, when using the Phonoklip bracket. This patented acoustic body bracket, encompasses a unique body section which works to absorb noise generated from the pipework into the building structure.
LOW NOISE PIPE SYSTEMS
Building on the 30-year plastic low-noise legacy of the Wavin AS system, the new and improved AS+ solution provides advanced noise reduction in soil and waste systems. The compact design is ideal for small and narrow spaces, a unique material composition delivers sound absorption, whilst a patented blue seal assists in leak and failure-proof installation.
