    had a couple of quotes and was shocked , who is about , thanks
     
  2. Hunter plastic via Travis / Buildbase / Jewsons. Thanks k I bet about 45% off list

    Or Google it, several screwfix type companies that specialise in this, haulage can be pricey for the long lengths though

    It is shockingly expensive for what it is. Last lot of 4” down I got was 3m lengths from toolstation worked out cheapest. Hate to think what the 6” stuff comes to :greedy:

    TBH if its out of sight, 6m length of twinwall is OK.
    Reckon the "proper" way is approaching £100 a drop with brackets and all.

    Used these last year for 6" gutter but not downpipe. Weren't too bad I recall. Can you drop it into a smaller downpipe? ie 110mm

    Thinking the same , £20 a length against getting up to £100 for the proper stuff. Would be looking at it around the back of the yard but then again I would always think I've saved around £450 with other fittings !!

    Have you tried looking for 150mm soil pipe? Same stuff, different price.

    Not at all , A W Mobbs coal-building merchants , Wheatley , Oxfordshire.

    Ask for Andy Mobbs.

    Very good family firm , I did ask him if it was ok to forward his details regarding the pipe.
