Water ingress to ducting at Leicester University Sports Centre

Restek were asked by Leicester University to assess a steel corrugated pipe approximately 1.8 metres diameter by 23 linear metres which was showing signs of persistent water infiltration resulting from corrosion to the base of the ducting. We were asked to devise a suitable solution that could be carried out in a confined space whilst extending the service life of the duct by some 25years.

We looked at many options of reducing all the points of ingress and decided that the level of ingress required a unique solution that would give three effective barriers against water infiltration and enable the ducts to remain in situ whist extending the design life of the corrugated pipe.
