An Access Bend is a simple but crucial pipe fitting that changes the direction in a drainage system and usually comes in 90 degree bends made from various materials in standard diameters. They are usually situated at the base of a soil vent pipe, a drop shaft or beneath a downstairs toilet that often has a foot or support fin on its base to help absorb the force of the flushed water as it hits the base of the bend.
Because of the constant flow of water passing through them, these bends need to be particularly durable to withstand the water pressure and to last for a reasonable length of time. A poor quality bend or one that has been installed improperly can result in a leaking joint, hairline fracture or root ingress that will go on to damage your house or building’s foundation and can also lead to soil contamination by the seeping foul water.
At Low Cost Plumbing Supplies, we have a number of durable and cost effective access bends that will be perfect for your plumbing task at hand. These bends are made from Unplasticized Polyvinyl Chloride or uPVC that is nearly as rigid as cast iron pipe making it a popular choice for plumbing sewage and drainage lines all over the world. We also have a number of other pipe fittings like pipe sockets, drain connectors, adjustable bends, triple socket branches, short boss pipes, mushroom vent cowls and admittance valves.
