- Rain water drainage pipes. How deep are they usually buried?
About 6 inches under the lawn on mine and when the rain wouldn’t go down it causing a cascade off the roof. Found roots from a bush had taken residence. Ironically they put the drain in, 1ft from a surface drain. So a couple of 45 deg angles and a hacksaw later see the rain going down the drain now.Posted 4 years ago
It’s actually a drainage pipe which comes from the other houses in our road and passes under our front garden. We’re just trying to find the exact position of it because we want to build a timber garage, and are not allowed to build anything over the drainage pipe in case they ever need to dig it up?Posted 4 years agoeggshellblondeMember
A timber garage would normally count as a temporary structure and as such has very little regulation.
If the pipe is running from quite a few properties it may well be very deep. Think about-at the first house it services it is underground and then from that point it gets deeper as it goes past each subsequent house.Posted 4 years ago
