To assess the flexible saddle developed and produced by Flexseal Couplings Ltd for the in situ connection of laterals etc. to gravity sewers and pressure pipes.
Version 1 of the flexible saddle is designed to connect 150 mm drainage pipes (clay, plastics, iron) to DN 375 up to DN 1500 concrete pipes.
A rubber bush is needed for connecting to some pipes. Future developments will increase the range of product sizes and the scope of assessments required.
