Sewer performance

What does it take for serwers to run optimally?

Why is sewer performance important?

Our sewer systems are under pressure due our ageing infrastructure, urbanisation and climate change.

We want to put the spotlight on ways to increase sewer system performance, decrease leakages, and avoid and remove blockages. That’s how we will ensure our sewer systems function optimally over their lifetime while keeping total cost of ownership low.

Water tightness - why bother?

Watch our experts discuss why water tightness matters and how to create leak-free systems.

How to mitigate leakage risk in sewer and storm water systems?

Together with industry experts, Wavin has created a technical paper that explores what causes leakages and outlines how you can use intelligent design solutions and optimal installation to prevent leaks and ensure watertight foul- and storm water systems. Download now

Pipe flotation what to do to avoid it

As ground water levels are rising, pipe flotation can become an issue. In this blogpost, we explore how geotechnical engineering can prevent pipe flotation. Read more

Avoid tree root ingress

Tree roots inside sewer pipes are not uncommon. Wavin examines the causes and effects of root growth and what we can do to prevent damage in our underground infrastructure. Read more
When inlets have been created in concrete sewer lines, connections that are not closed off are by far most common cause for root ingrowth. When a sewer line is properly installed ingrowth is very rare.
