Land Drainage Pipe Couplers in Black
Sometimes called land drainage pipe joiners, or pipe sockets – land drainage pipe couplers enable the easy joining of two land drainage pipes together. They’re made from PVC of HDPE and are black in colour.
Land Drainage is the term given to perforated drainage pipes which are utilised to heal areas that are waterlogged in gardens or other areas such as sports fields. They are perforated pipes that allow water to enter through perforations. The water flows away to some disposal stage like a stream, a storm drain or a soakaway. You should check to confirm your point of outfall is permissible. Land Drains should never be attached to a drain that was joint or filthy without the permission of the Local Authority, and in such circumstances the relationship must incorporate a snare.
KINDS OF LAND DRAIN
Most land drains now come in the kind of flexible coils made from PVC. The diameter of these pipes varies from 60mm to 150mm, although 80mm and 100mm are the most popular sizes for national applications. Coil lengths are 25m or 50m, although coils are available in some of the sizes. A perforated Twinwall pipe ought to be used instead of the flexible coiled alternative, where there is a need for strength in the pipe. Examples of this would be in instances such as or in which the pipe is buried down and the material above the pipe is heavy.
Unlike underground ducting where colour is an indicator of what is inside the duct, colour is irrelevant when it comes to land drains. A clear path for the water to travel through is created, as the gap between each piece of shingle is a lot greater than the gaps between the soil particles by replacing the majority of these dirt particles with granular material like shingle. Gravity takes hold and the water then picks up speed, into the land drain and channelling downwards itself through the perforations in the pipe. Once inside the pipe, which is placed in a gentle gradient, the water is free to flow away unhindered into the point of disposal.
Designed to be utilised in the agriculture as well as the leisure and sport industries, our land drainage pipe systems are also kitemarked to BS 4962 and are made from uPVC or HDPE. They are strong flexible and simple to install supplying water flow. We can provide: a range of un-perforated, perforated, fin drain and fittings. They are pipes that allow water to enter through perforations. The water flows away to some disposal point like a storm drain, or a soakaway. You should check to verify your favourite point of outfall is permissible. Land Drains shouldn’t be attached to a drain which was foul or combined without the permission of the Local Authority, and in these situations the installation must include a trap. Land drainage systems are flexible, powerful and easy to install providing water flow. Although coils can be found in dimensions from 60mm to 160mm, lengths are 25m, 50m or 100m. If there’s a need for strength in the pipe, then a perforated Twinwall pipe should be used instead of the coiled alternate. Examples of this would be where the pipe is buried deep and the material over the pipe is heavy.
