Pit pipe issue

Finding My Feet

Pit pipe issue

Hi Bunnings Community,

I may have done something wrong here. I had to dig the old drainage pipe from the pit to change the inclination and now the hole in the pit is a bit bigger than before. :smile:

I don't really want to change the pit. Is there something I can apply to plug the hole? something of a waterproof tarp? Any advice?

Hi @flolemens 

Given pits are not pressurized and with the grid on you cant see it. Pretty much any thick plastic would be functional. At a pinch even a milk bottle and a tube of silicon to seal it. Not pretty but would do the job. JDE
