Pitch fibre drains were introduced in the 1940s, and widely used until the 1970s. The life span of a pitch fibre pipe is approximately 40 years. If your pitch fibre drains are not leaking, damaged or blocking it is probably best to leave them alone. All the time the asbestos stays undisturbed and underground, it will not be a health risk.

If your pitch fibre drains are causing a problem, you can either have them excavated and replaced, or, if they haven’t been damaged too much, they can be repaired with non-dig repair technology, such as structural lining. A non-dig repair is generally quicker, cheaper and less disruptive than excavation and replacement. 

With either repair solution, it is important, due to the asbestos element, that pitch fibre pipes should only be handled by experts that will deal with them in a safe manor.
