Our  inspection chambers sizes are available from 300mm diameter which can be effective up to a depth of 600mm. These mini access chambers are usually located close to the house and therefore near the top of the drain.

Larger, 450mm diameter inspection chambers are standard for rodding and cleaning domestic underground drainage and can be used at any depth up to 3m. Please remember to add a chamber reducing ring to your basket for any system deeper than 1.2m.

    An inspection chamber is a manhole, or underground access point, that drains from one side to the other.

    An inspection chamber is typically required in any drainage system where two or more pipes join together. These chambers allow for easy access to the pipes so that maintenance can be performed, such as clearing a blockage or repairing a leaking joint.
