IKT has tested nine commercially available sewer lateral saddles on behalf of fourteen sewer-system operators. In view of the frequency of damage in their own systems, these operators perceive a significant risk for their investments when installing sewer lateral saddles. The underlying concept of the IKT Comparative Test is that of intensive cooperation between research and practice. The IKT Comparative Test “Sewer lateral saddles” has therefore been developed on the…
