Weep holes around Drip Trays?

by ChocolateTeaPot » Wed Mar 23, 2022 4:04 pm

Three cavity wall drip-trays are to be inserted side by side in a wall. Each drip-tray is the width of two bricks side by side. So, should I insert a total of four plastic weep-holes? This would give a weep-hole wedge at each end and two weep-hole wedges in the middle?
Thanks in advance for comments.

Hi chocolateteapot,
If you are using cavity trays with upstands at each end use one weep hole for each tray.

Thanks so much for replying .. should the plastic weep-hole wedge go in the middle of the tray?

Hi chocolateteapot,
Assuming the trays are around horizontal it doesn’t matter. You brick spacing will determine where they can be located.

Yes, vents/ weep holes go in the middle between the two bricks. Watch you don't block them with any mortar.
