1. General
This method statement describes for the installation of sewer piping system and waste
water piping system

2. Extent of Works
This method statement covers the followings:-
Manufacturing details of septic tank and soakage pit
Method of construction of sewer disposal system
Method of construction of waste water disposal system

3. References Documents
1. Shop drawing of sewer and waste water system
2. Guaran

4. Investigation of Honeycomb

Honeycomb will be caused by some reasons such as followings.


(1) Segregation of coarse aggregate in the concrete due to free fall from pipe or hitting to
the reinforcing bars during placing.
(2) Segregation of coarse aggregate in the concrete due to long transportation by concrete
pump with long pipe arrangement.
(3) Lack or improper compaction by vibrator.
(4) Placing of concrete into the water pool which is made by rain water, washing water,
bleeding water, etc.
(5) Leakage of mortar from the opening or gap of formwork.

Honeycomb shall be investigated by the concrete engineer in the presence of the Engineer
when it is found.
Location, size, and assumed reason of the honeycomb shall be recorded in the
investigation sheet.

6. Repair of Honeycomb

6.1 General

Repairs shall be performed by skilled workmen and the Contractor shall inform the Engineer before
starting the repair work. Materials, procedures and operations used in the repair of concrete, and
also the finished work, shall be done in accordance with the orders and instructions of the Engineer.

6.2 Repairs with Class A Concrete

Where the depth of damage is more than 200 mm, the repair shall be made by first saw-cutting a
grove 4 cm deep around the perimeter of the damaged area. Then the damaged concrete shall be
removed by light weight jackhammer and the resulting surface shall be cleaned by chisel and
compressed air to receive the epoxy-bond coat.

Damp or wet areas shall be dried with a propane torch immediately before applying the bonding
agent to prepare a surface warm to the tough.

Epoxy boding agent Sikadur 32 or Sikadur 32LP will be applied on the cleaned surface of
concrete.

After the application on the clean and dry surface, and while still in a tacky stage, the bonding agent
shall be overlaid with the repair concrete.

The repair concrete shall be of Class A with plastic to stiff consistency or as otherwise directed by
the Engineer.

If the bonding agent has set before applying the concrete, it shall be removed by additional
chiseling.

6.3 Repairs with New Mortar

Where the depth of damage is between 60mm and 200 mm, the repair shall be made by first saw-
cutting a grove 4 cm deep around the perimeter of the damaged area. Then the damaged concrete
shall be removed by light weight jackhammer and the resulting surface shall be cleaned by chisel
and compressed air to receive the epoxy-bond coat.

Damp or wet areas shall be dried with a propane torch immediately before applying the bonding
agent to prepare a surface warm to the tough.

Epoxy boding agent Sikadur 32 or Sikadur 32LP will be applied on the cleaned surface of
concrete.

After the application on the clean and dry surface, and while still in a tacky stage, the bonding agent
shall be overlaid with the repair mortar.

The repair mortar shall be of dry pack mortar with plastic to stiff consistency using same materials
of existing concrete or as otherwise directed by the Engineer.

If the bonding agent has set before applying the concrete, it shall be removed by additional
chiseling.

6.4 Repairs with Epoxy mortar Coating

Where the depth of damage is less than 60mm, the repair shall be made by first saw-cutting a
grove 3 cm deep around the perimeter of the damaged area. Then the damaged concrete shall be
removed by light weight jackhammer and the resulting surface shall be cleaned by chisel and
compressed air to receive the epoxy-mortar coat.

Damp or wet areas shall be dried with a propane torch immediately before applying the bonding
agent to prepare a surface warm to the tough.

Epoxy mortar Sikadur 53UF will be applied on the cleaned surface of concrete.
