TermiPore is a one stop solution provide for all your termite & pest related problems. If you have any queries, our in-house experts will be able to resolve your doubts & problems.

It is a network of pipes installed in a net-like design, to inject and spread termiticide across the area where it is installed. TermiPore Pipes are in use for more than 10 years.

What is Anti-Termite Reticulation System?

This system is suitable for all floors. It is a preotective line on the ground floor where the termiticide will stop termite attacks at the foundation itself. But it is also suitable for installing under the tiles so it helps in protecting higher floors as well.

Termite attacks are not restricted to only ground floor. Termites can sneak into your premises through a crack as small as 1/30th of an inch, and they forage day and night for food, in the background, causing irreparable destruction. Termites can also come in through construction material or interior deoration material used, or even through trees and vegetation around the house. 

It is usually too late by the time we can notice damage due to termites on the surface. The loss due to termites is far more than the cost of preventive Anti-termite Reticulation.

Installing a piping system and injecting in it regularly is a small cost compared to the expensive property and interiors in modern houses.  


Is this system suitable for all floors or only for the ground floor ?

Before TermiPore reticulation piping system, there were some other ways in which agencies used to install anti termite reticulation system. These systems had problems and often did not protect against termites, and so even now many people  feel that anti termite piping systems do not work

One method was using drip irrigation pipes. These usually have just 3 to 4 holes per mtr and that too only on one side. Earlier when this was the only option available, many agencies used these pipes. But drip irrigation pipes with drippers are designed for agriculture and irrigation use. They are meant to be used in the field and kept in the open. So when the holes block after a few years, the farmer can easily replace the pipe or cut a portion of the pipe and join it again. When these were used in anti termite piping, ad some holes blocked, the termicide could not be injected in that area and so that part was exposed to termite attacks.

Another system offered in the market by plumbers is that of installing plumbing PVC pipes and drilling holes in it manually. This system has a major flaw - the drilled holes will be quite large. It is not possible to make very very fine or consistent holes this way. As a result, the flow of termicide was not uniform. In fact it was much higher than required. As a result, the termicide would go only the partial length of the pipe, before the quantity of termicide being injected was over. So this left the system open to termite attacks

This kind of historical experience has made many feel that the anti termite reticulation system does not work. However as technology changes, new products and improved systems are now available and they work well.

TermiPore Pipe is a product made specially for anti termite reticulation system.

Depending on the size selected, there are 80 to 100 holes per meter and on all sides of the circumference. The honeycomb structure of TermiPore is created is through a special process of compounding and manufacturing. The holes are not straight line which can be blocked by sand falling on it. They open up with slight pressure of the pump. Hence they do not block of choke with sand or mud. (However one needs to be careful that direct cement does not fall. Once the wet cement dries, it will not allow the holes to open up.)

Moreover the flow rate is designed and controlled so that the termicide flows on all sides and all along the length for at least 60 to 70 feet even with the smallest of pumps. So you can be sure that the termicide will reach every nook and corner.

These properties make TermiPore the ideal choice for anti termite reticulation system.

I have heard that such piping system does not work and the pipes get blocked. Is this true?

This piping system is suitable for both and we recommend that once you install, you inject termiticde regularly to prevent attack. However if there is a termite attack, then this piping is a ready delivery system available to inject termiticide easily, rather than having to drill in the walls and skirting. 


Is this piping system useful for prevention or is it for use after termites have attacked the property?

As for as adequate termiticide is injected through the pipes after installation and at regular intervals thereafter, the termites will not come anywhere close to the pipes. However, termiticides can bore through any material, even though metal pipes! So please ensure that termiticide is injected at regular intervals.

As far as we are aware , there is no specific IS standard available for anti termite reticulation system. We are working with various agencies and coucnils to develop a standardised system or at least a test method for this. And as soon as it is ready we will be able to provide them to you.

However there are IS standards for anti termite treatment for buildings. These give the type and quantity of chemicals to be used at various places in a building. You can use these as refernce for deciding on the termiticide and its quantity. The TermiPore Reticulation System is eseentially a delivery mechanism, so using these IS standards you can decide on the chemicals and its quantity, and use TermiPore to inject that quantity of termiticide.

You can access these IS standards here:

BIS standard 6313 - part 1 : 1981

BIS standard 6313 - part 2 : 2001

BIS standard 6313 - part 3 : 2001


Does this system confirm to any IS standard?

This system injects termiticides into the ground and cannot prevent or control pests or insects

This system is not a substitute for soil or foundation treatment as prescribed in BIS standard 6313.

We recommend that you still follow that system and ensure that the soil and foundation are treated as per IS standard or as per recommendation of your civil engineer / architect / pest contorl service provider.

This system is an additional protection to regularly inject the termiticide every 2-3 years, to continue the prevent termite attack. 

Sometimes the initial soil and foundation treatment may not have been done as well as required. Or the geographic area that the building is in will have a higher incidence of termite attacks. Or there are construction materials used even after the initial treatment, which bring with them termites. In such cases TermiPore offers you an easy way to inject termiticide and keep preventing attacks

How is TermiPore system better than other methods of termite treatment?

The cost of the entire system will vary depending on the size of the property . Larger the property, lower will be the per square foot cost. The total cost of the system including material and installation and termiticide would be anywhere between Rs 15/- to Rs 50/- per sq foot depending on the size selected and the extent of piping needed. 

TermiPore does not have any manually drilled holes. The honeycomb structure that is created is through a special process of compounding and manufacturing. The holes are not straight line which can be blocked by sand falling on it. They open up with slight pressure of the pump. Hence they do not block of choke with sand or mud. (However one needs to be careful that direct cement does not fall. Once the wet cement dries, it will not allow the holes to open up.)

Each meter of TermiPore pipe has about 50 to 100 holes, and they are all around the circumference. If you are worried that the installation agency may not be careful and put sand over it that will close the holes, the total number of holes is large. Even if you assume that 90% will close, the 10% holes that remain open are still sufficient to discharge the termicide.

TermiPore pipe has a replacement warranty against manufacturing defect. This can be identified by testing as soon as the pipe is installed, before covering it. Such a situation should not arise if installation and pumping is done as recommended. Every roll of TermiPore is tested before we ship it and you can see the testing procedure here

To avail of the warranty it is necessary to test it in open condition immediately after installation before other activities at the construction site can affect the pipe's installation. And if at that time you find that the product is not working, please get in touch with us and we will replace the TermiPore pipe.


TermiPore is available in multiple sizes. However for most applications we recommend the 12.5 x 17.5 mm size (Green line marking) since it has sufficient thickness and required flow area for proper termiticide injection. A higher thickness pipe with inside 12.5 mm size is also recommended for more weight bearing and more consistent flow rate.

For places where space under the tile is a constraint, we have the 9.5 x 14.5 mm (orange line marking) which also has required thickness, but with a little smaller flow area. The termiticide injection will take about 15% longer, but it will perform equally well in all other parameters. 

See the chart below for a quick comparison

What is the difference between the different sizes of TermiPore Pipes? Which is the best size for Anti-termite Reticulation System.

Since the construction methods and practices are significantly different in each area, it is most likely that pest control service providers in your area are using only one of the standard sizes. This is preferred so that all fittings, installations, and future injection is through standards followed in your area. So rather than choose any size and insist on it, we recommend that you go with the size most common in your city and used by most pest control service providers in your area.

All sizes are made with the same durable material using the same extensive process. And the life once installed under the flooring is also the same. So all sizes will work and serve the purpose of reticulation. Selecting a standard size is better since it will be easier to find a service provide to inject the termiticide every year.

One size that is most versatile and suitable in all applications is the 0.5" x 2.5 mm thickness size . We have it as 12.5 x 17.5 mm size with green line marking

Which product / size is the best for long term benefits?

The life of the pipe is very long. It is made of non-degradable elastomeric compounds that will last for 30-50 years.We have been making TermiPore pipe since more than 15 years. And here you can see some videos of termiticide injection working perfectly even after so many years

TermiPore pipe undergoes regular testing in-house and in laboratories. Some of the tests that we conduct are:

  • Accelerated Weathering Test
  • Environment Stress Crack Resistance
  • Restriction of Hazarodus Substances
  • Tensile Strength
  • Elongation at break
  • Flow uniformity test
  • Material structure and integrity test
  • Testing material compatibility with various termiticides like Imeda Clorpit and Fipronil
  • Uniformity of flow over multiple injections 
  • Long period injection testing in soil

TermiPore results in all these tests ensures that every roll ofTermiPore pipe is suitable for long term use in preventive termite reticulation system.To ensure proper working life please install as per the recommended method.

TermiPore Pipe is sturdy and strong with thick walls for underground installation and is made of specially developed elastomeric compounds.  It will not get squeezed if properly installed. It will get squeezed only if there is heavy weight placed directly on it or is bent at sharp corners without using an elbow. We recommend that it is laid alongside and under the sand plus brick layer, or in a groove of proper size. You do not need a groove size of more than an inch. At sharp turns, do not bend pipes, use elbows instead.

Termipore pipe has holes all over and so there is really no bursting that can take place, however as a product data literature we can take this as 50 PSI where it will lose all its integrity to perform well

Termipore pipe is NOT the same as porous pipe, in fact it is very different from porous pipe


  • The generic porous pipes available are meant for use in irrigation and the flow rates are accordingly designed.
  • They are also of thin wall thickness. Which is okay for use under soil and in open fields. But they do not have the required strength of walls and can compress if used in reticulation
  • In case flow rate variation along length is high, the soil can be dug up and the pipes replaced.
  • Also the thin walls require that the pipes be replaced every 4-5 years since they block or disintegrate.

Such replacement is not possible with reticulation. Hence Termipore pipes are different by:

  • High quality thermoplastic elastomeric compound that ensures long life
  • Optimum flow rate designed for reticulation and termiticide injection
  • Consistent micro holes all around the pipe and across its entire length
  • Every roll of Termipore is checked to ensure proper flow rate is available
  • Superior material and high wall thickness to ensure higher weight bearing capacity and consistent flow of termiticide

We do not provide installation service but you can contact us  to know the pest control service providers in your area who use Termipore pipes

We estimate that a 1000 sq ft floor area requires about 125 mtr of Termipore pipe. You can find a complete kit available in our product section that has Termipore pipe as well as other fittings required for a 1000 to 1200 sq ft floor area. You can find the details of the TermPore Kit here

How much TermiPore Pipe will I need to install on my property?

TermiPore Pipes offers multiple options for installation before, during and even after construction. Before construction it can be installed at foundation, plinth or ground level; During construction, it can be installed before floor tiles, and after construction it can be installed around the periphery of the constructed premises and/or around the border/fence of the building.

Though installing TermiPore Reticulation System is a simple process, we recommend that you use the services of experts in the field, so that no nuance is missed. Installation is just a one-time process and it is best done under the supervision of experts in the field.

Wet and moist areas are the most prone to termite attacks and hence have a higher need for preventive termite treatment. 

If you install TermiPore just under the tile, and if the water proofing and tiling is not proper, then water may seep under the floor and spread to the house walls,  through the pipe. This is not common and we have not observed it so far, but it is a possibility. 

Hence we recommend that you install in wet areas, but also ensure that the quality of construction and water proofing done there is good. 

The flow rate of TermiPore pipe is designed such that when injecting with a low pressure pump, the termiticide can reach 60 to 70 feet. This flow rate is ensured in every roll, and is designed after years of testing and experience. If the flow rate is kept more than this, then you will need to install junction box at very short intervals because the termiticide will not go very far with small pumps usually used by pest control services. This will not be practical and will distrub the looks and layout of the property.

If the flow rate is very less, then the termiticide can go to almost 200 feet along the length of the pipe and many rooms can be covered with just one junction box. However the rate of release per meter will be so less that it will take a very long time to inject required quantity of termiticide.

So we have identified this 'just right' flow rate - the Goldilocks zone - where you can get proper quantity of termiticide with reasonably less junction boxes.

To get this with low pressure pumps typically used, the installed length of termipore should be 60 to 70 feet. Sometimes due to the layout of the building, the installed length is higher. As a result you will not be able to see the termiticide return to the other open end when injected from one inlet of the junction box.

This is not a problem. The fact that the termiticide quantity is reducing in the drum / container is proof that all pipes are working well.

So we suggest that you inject half the quantity of termiticide from each inlets. 

Or you use a higher pressure pump and you will be able to see the termiticide oozing out from one side as you inject from the other.


If you are installing in the soil, or at the foundation level, then a criss - cross grid layout with TermiPore pipe ever 4 feet horizontally and vertically is a better option. That way sufficient termiticide will reach all places. 

However if you are installing just below the tile, then you will install seprate border pipes for each individual room, running TermiPore along the length of the wall. In such a case, border to border installation is okay, but do ensure that if there are pillars / column in the room then you also install TermiPore around the column / pillar   

Here is a list of Dos and Don’ts for TermiPore Installation:. You can also get details of installation here

  1. Install Termipore on a bed of sand using fixing hooks/barbed clamp
  2. Use elbows at sharp turnings, t-jointers at cross sections, and jointers to connect pipes
  3. Use a junction box at every 30 meters/100 feet
  4. Check flow-rate after installation
  5. Use a 1hp/0.3 kg/cm2 pump
  6. Cover the pipes with sand after installation and after checking the flow rate
  7. Do not allow direct contact between cement and TermiPore
  8. Do not bring TermiPore Pipes all the way to the junction box; use a plain plastic pipe for that
  9. Do not install TermiPore in wet areas
  10. Do not use termiticides where powder or chemical is suspended in the liquid 

If you are installing at ground floor, then you have a choice of installing Termipore system in the soil or just under the flooring. In such a situation - provided the architect and engineer have planned this system well in advance, then it is always better to install in the soil so that the termite attack can be prevented earlier. 

However often the stage of construction has passed and many customers realise that they want to install TermiPore system but the floor has been cast. In such a case it is still a good idea to install TermiPore just under the tile. This is also the space where traditionally pest control service providers drill and inject termiticide in case of termite attack, so you can always use this installation for preventive as well as curative treatments.

In case of the construction being on upper floors, then intalling under the tile is the only option.


Number of inlets and hence junction boxes needed depends on the size of the area where the system is installed. We recommend one junction box at every 30 meters/100 feet of TermiPore Pipe.

How many separate inlets / outlers should be provided for when installting the TermiPore Reticulation System?

Your building is safe from termites, only if you inject termiticide through the TermiPore Pipes. It is not enough just to install the system, you also need to inject termiticide soon after installation and at regular intervals too, usually once in a year or two. Your local pest control service provider will assess and advise you based on the area your property is in.

A good reticulation system needs to ensure that the termiticide reaches everywhere and is able to soak the soil properly. The flow rate of Termipore is hence controlled so that it is not so high that the termiticide does not reach till the end of the pipe. Nor is it so less that the speed of oozing is very slow. As per design, all Termipore pipes are made with optimum flow rate that will ensure termiticide will reach till about 60-70 feet when injected with a 0.5 HP or 1 HP pump. Hence we recommend that a junction box be placed after every such distance

Termipore pipe has a life of many decades once it is in the floor. However the honeycomb structure means that the pipe’s strength and life is reduced when exposed outside. So if Termipore pipe is used above the floor and brought out in the junction box, then after a few years it will crack and so it will be very difficult to inject termiticide. To avoid this we recommend that a plain flexible PVC or a UPVC pipe is used. For a much longer term solution, you can avoid bringing out any pipes in the junction box and instead use brass nipple. So with only such a brass nipple exposed in the junction box, the risk of any kind of inlet pipe degrading or cracking is minimized. And you can be sure that the inlets will be proper for injecting termiticide even after many many years.

We recommend that Emulsion Concentrate based termiticides be used for injecting in TermiPore since they do not have any suspended particles in the termiticide.  a more common termiticide is Suspension Concentrate, however they have suspended particles in them and are not suitable for any piping system. A professional pest control service provider will be able to give you brand names and chemical names of the products that are Emulsion Concentrate based.  

You can read a detailed explanation below

An IS standard is also available for anti termite treatment mesures in building - IS 6313 - pat 1 : 1981 and IS 6313 - part 2 :2001. These give detailed system of the chemicals to use and the quantity to use. Based on this standard, soil treatment is recommended using Chloropyrifos 20EC (1% active ingredient) or Lindane 20 EC (1 % active ingredient). However these chemicals are technically Suspension Concentrate and will have suspended particles. So although IS standards recommend this for spraying, these are not suitable for injecting through the piping system. There are newer and better termiticide available which are Emulsion Concentrate and they do not have any suspended particles in it. We recommend that you use these.


You can use a 0.5 HP or a 1 HP monobloc pump.

You can also use a a battery operated sprayer. These do not need a power inlet and have a variable pressure knob to increase or decrease the pressure. You can see videos of injection on our youtube channel 

The type of termiticide, the quantity, the length of time and the frequency of treatment that is to be injected is a specialized field of the pest control service provider and we recommend that you consult them for these details. 

However we recommend that a termcitide like Fipronil or Imidacloprid of a reputed brand is used with TermiPore. Imidaclorpid is a suspension concentrate and is an old tried and tested forumulation, also recommend in BIS standard. Fipronil is an emulsion concentrate and hence is better suited with TermiPore since it does not have any suspended particles. We have tested TermiPore with both EC and SC termiticides and TermiPore works well in both. 

The type of termiticide, the quantity, the length of time and the frequency of treatment that is to be injected is a specialized field of the professional pest control service provider and we recommend that you consult them for these details.

Based on various standards and interactions with termiticide manufacturer, we have observed that injecting once in 2 years is a good practice especially since the soil treatment done at the time of construction may not have been ideal. And in recent years, with construction now spreading to land that was till recently farms and fields, the intensity of termite attack has increased substantially.

The quantity recommended as per BIS standard 6313 is 5 ltr for 1 sq mtr of horizontal floor area.

This works out to approximately 3 ltr per running meter of TermiPore pipe but that is only an approximation

Hence for a 1000  to 1200 square foot house will need 465 ltr of the termiticde once in 2 years   

We recommend the following steps to inject termiticide once the pipe is laid:

  • Before covering the pipes with tiles / flooring, inject water with a 1 HP pump through the outlets provided in the junction box. Check that the water is reaching everywhere. Even though it may not be equal in every place, the entire length of pipe should get the water and wet the soil in about 15 to 20 minutes of injecting 
  • Immediately on completion of construction, and then regularly (usually once a year) as per recommendation of your pest control service provider, ensure you inject termiticide through all the junction boxes.
  • Use a 1 HP Monobloc pump to pump in the termiticide in one end of the pipe. Wait for about 5 to 10 minutes and if the installation is in short length, you should get the termiticide out from the other pipe. Close the other end of the pipe with an end plug once that happens.
  • Now the termiticide is releasing in the soil through the micro holes in Termipore Pipe. Keep pumping till the termiticide is over. Usually this will take 20 to 30 minutes depending on quantity and length of pipe installed.
  • In case the length installed is longer than 60 feet, and you do not get the termiticide out from the other end of the pipe, wait till half the termiticide is pumped in and then change sides – inject pump in from the other end of the pipe.
  • The type of termiticide, the quantity, the length of time and the frequency of treatment that is to be injected is a field of a pest control service provider and we recommend that you consult them for these details


Although Termipore pipe is designed and tested so that the flow rate is as uniform as possible, the material and process of making the pipe is such that there will be variations of +/- 20% in the flow rate along the length of the pipe, as well as between pipes. This is because the honeycomb structure is created during the curing process when the pipe is made, and the holes are drilled post-production.

Moreover, there will be minor variations from batch to batch because of the conditions and the unique process of making this pipe. However, despite the high variation along the length, if you install Termipore pipe as recommended – giving a junction box every 20 to 30 meters and keeping two outlets in the junction box, the required termiticide will reach everywhere when injected using a 1 HP pump or a motorized sprayer
