Hi zoners,

 

I broke some of these tiles when re-concreting my path. What are these tiles called and where can I get them?

Field Tiles? Plumbing supplies or Mitre 10/Bunnings etc, perhaps.




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

Were they part of a drainage channel?

 

If so, you might find some at a second hand building parts centre.

I'd be surprised if the usual hardware outlets had earthenware drainage. AFAIK they have moved on to plastic slot drains. My BiL replaced a short run of clay pipe with plastic and used the recovered tiles for repairs.

Perhaps a second building supplies place that sells stuff that has been ripped out of out houses.

They are a drainage channel to the side of a footpath. There's 20-30 metres of it and the 5-6 metre bit I have to re-instate is mid-way along the length of it.

 

I thought that changing to plastic type stuff would be bad not only for inconsistent looks but also a challenge to make the water flow nicely between the differing profiles.
