Re: Raising a drainage chamber to new ground level

Thank you Stoneyboy.
I considered doing that but then found the 'Marley Underground Chamber Riser' for £32.90. I cut it to the right length, then stuck it on by wrapping with Evostick tape and concreting around. I'm hoping it works. Thanks for your advice though.

Laying paviours over old concrete drive

I have an old concrete drive along the side of the house. Although i believe there is a slight fall to the road, there is nevertheless puddling in places after rainfall, which only disappears by drying.
