Pipes for drainage - make a choice in favor of longevity

Variety of pipe material for drainage

Application drainage system eliminates the problem of building foundation damage residual water that accumulate in his field.Her pipes protect the house from various injuries related to the possible formation of mold, manifestations moisture, prevents the formation of ice accumulation on the tracks, flooding cellars and rotting of the root system of garden plants.

pipes are:

  • ceramic, also known pottery;
  • asbestos cement;
  • plastic (polyethylene, polymer, polyvinyl chloride).

Pottery and asbestos-cement pipes have considerable weight, which requires additional costs for transportation and installation.In addition, the cuts they are applied directly to the assembly, which significantly lengthens the process.

propylene holes pass a large amount of sand and dirt, which contributes to the rapid silting of pipes and the output of the whole system down, and flushing of the system quite laborious.They also have a relatively short period of active service.

Plastic tubes for drainage have a corrugated structure that allows the dirt load is uniformly distributed over the entire surface of the pipe.Due to this such a tube permanently retains its strength and reliability.Plastic drains have a low weight, it greatly simplifies and reduces the cost of transportation and installation process.Pruning is done normal hacksaw.

Species filters

Drains are without filter, the filter of geotextile in the coconut winding.Pipes have standard unfiltered water bore (1.3 mm), which are in the wave troughs and thus protected against various debris.Data pipes are laid to a depth of 3.5m standard length of 50 m, and the diameter -. 50 to 200 mm.

Drena filter geotextile has the same characteristics as the previous tube, but the use of geo can further protect it from penetration of the smallest particles of the soil.Coconut tube in the two previous windings differs only using coconut husk as a filtration material.

In order to determine which drain is necessary for you, you must know what type of soil on the site.If the probability of sedimentation of the drainage system is negligible, it is possible to use the pipes without filter.If sedimentation system can occur, it is advisable to use a filter coated tubes.

Filter geo appropriate in sandy loam, sandy and peat soils.Coconut fiber is used in clay and loam.

structure and operation of drainage pipes rules

Perforated drainage pipe may have a single-layer or double-layer structure.In the embodiment, a single-layer corrugated surface and is repeated inside the pipe in two layers - the inner surface is smooth.Experts advise to use dual-layer drains, becausesmooth surface is less silting and subsequent purification of such a system is much easier and simpler.

laying drains carried out to a depth of 1.5 to 3.5 meters.Sides and bottom of the trench before installation, carefully leveled and compacted GPS.In addition, it should be mandatory to observe and slope drains.It is the norm of 2 mm per meter pipe.In practice, this rate is slightly higher, about 4.5 mm.

Also be sure the device manholes along the entire length of the drainage system.All the collected water collects rainwater in the well, which is located at the lowest point of the site.The collected water can be discharged into the sewer system or used for economic purposes.
