pipe through DPM


Postby mortarboard » Tue Jul 08, 2008 8:11 pm

I want to bring a pipe up through my DPM before I pour my floor slab.

Can anyone tell me if its OK to just cut a hole and push it through or is there some particular way I should seal round it?

Many thanks

I'd not punch a hole in it and try and seal it at the dpm level.

Scrunch up the dpm in a sort of wizard's had " __A__ " shape, bringing the peak up above the concrete floor level, and put the pipe through at the very top, so that there is no breach in the dpm below the floor.
