What Are Perforated Land Drainage Pipes?
Perforated land drainage pipes are primarily used for draining open spaces that are too large or isolated to be practically drained by gullies or into channel drainage systems. Much like other types of drains, perforated land drainage pipes and fittings take in water and convey it away from the area that you’re trying to drain, usually into a natural watercourse or a mains sewer system. This is very useful in boggy or waterlogged areas that need to be kept dry such as car parks, sports fields, agricultural land or large lawns and can be a great asset in keeping these usable all year round.
Why Use Perforated Land Drainage Pipes?
Perforated land drainage pipes have a few advantages over fixed drains and gullies, notably that they are much more scalable and can be used on large sites relatively easily and inexpensively without a large amount of groundwork. This means they are very cost effective when used at scale, and can cover much more space for the money you spend. Another advantage of perforated land drainage pipes and fittings is that it’s much easier and more cost effective to dispose of the water once it’s collected, allowing it to be conveyed along the pipes a considerable distance to where it can be safely drained into a sewer or water course. Perforated drainage pipes are also useful for managed drainage, draining water at a slow but steady rate to prevent flooding at the site they empty into, unlike larger systems which have a larger capacity.
What Types Of Perforated Land Drainage Pipes Are There?
The two major types of land drainage pipe are perforated and unperforated, which serve two different functions in the drainage process. Perforated land drainage pipes are the kind that allow surface water to drain into them through the holes, taking the water into the pipe and carrying it to another location. The second type of land drainage pipe is the Unperforated version, which simply extends the reach of the system and allows water to be carried further away from the drainage area. Unperforated pipes are strengthened and corrugated to allow them to carry the water safely and without leaks. At the Drainage Shop we sell both drainage pipe types.
