Pipe Installation

The proper grade, fall or slope on which the pipe is laid is critical. Any reversals or dips in the grade will greatly reduce the life and effectiveness of the drain system. The pipe should have a continuous downhill fall over the entire lenght of the drain line. Pipe should drop 2.5 inches in 10 feet which amounts to .25 inch for every foot. Regardless of the contour of the landscape, our pipe installation maintain a downward slope.
