Re: Raft Slab - Pipe lagging2

Our builder (smaller local one) said the same thing with our raft slab in January. I noticed they did all the horizontals but not verticals...although I asked our construction manager to do them all for us. Not sure if he did or not, but I don’t think so assuming you would see signs of it where the pipe protrudes out of the concrete.

Wastes vertically through slab are not lagged and should also have termite protection collar if in termite declared areas.
If you lag the pipes , termites can enter your home through slab penetration as they do on some older home when lagging was used.
