Open Hole Square Precast Manhole (Worst Design)

Below are examples of Open Hole Square Precast storm drain manhole construction in various stages of completion. This multiple cold-joint construction method results in additional double, sometimes quadruple, cold-joints at the pipe connections. Not if, but when many of these cold-joints crack and fail, two things happen; water gets out and water with dirt gets in. Havoc results when dirt enters a failed pipe connection or faulty cold-joint and is carried away. Even if only by a spoonful per day, dirt will begin to disappear from underneath adjacent sidewalks, streets, and buildings. Google “sinkhole manholes” and read link below?

“The nearly seven-foot sinkhole…was caused as a result of erosion in a void that was found where the underground pipe connected to the manhole.”
