ADS corrugated polyethylene
tubing: Perfect for homesite and commercial drainage.
Systems, Inc. is America's leading
manufacturer of quality corrugated polyethylene pipe.
ADS pipe is manufactured of selected polyethylene resins to meet the
strictest product quality standards and industry specifications.
ADS manufactures a complete line of corrugated pipe, from 3-inch through
24-inch diameters for various drainage applications around the home, farm,
or construction site.
With ADS pipe, drainage is economically efficient. Affordable ADS pipe
costs just pennies per foot installed and is available in diameters from
3" to 48".
Rely on ADS pipe to meet all your drainage needs.
EASY TO INSTALL ~ Lightweight and
easy to carry. Saves time and labor. No special tools or fittings needed.
No waste; just cut to required length.
FLEXIBLE ~ Shifts with the ground.
No problems due to misalignment and clogging. Drainage system continues
to work efficiently because ADS pipe aligns itself.
STRONG-TOUGH-DURABLE ~ Won't crack
or break under normal handling and installation procedures. Tough enough
to withstand the heaviest loads.
LONG LIFE ~ Will not deteriorate.
Rust resistant. Not affected by acidic soil content or other problem soils.
Not affected by acidic soil content or other problem soils. Not affected
by freezing or thawing.
The principal applications for corrugated polyethylene are in agriculture,
in the construction industry and for highways and roads. Its wide acceptance
in these varied applications is due primarily to:
1. Ease of installation
|5. Resistance to abrasion
3. Resistance to corrosion
|7. Low cost
4. Unique structural properties
There are many applications for corrugated polyethylene tubing, but the
following are representative of its wide variety of uses:
DRAINAGE. Subsurface drainage of farmland is the key
to successful farming. In may cases it allows for reclamation of land
once considered to be unfit or unprofitable for farming. In addition,
subsurface drainage results in increased yields and improved farming operations.
The introduction of corrugated polyethylene tubing and improved installation
techniques has resulted in a lower installed cost for agricultural drainage
systems, than for other materials used in the past. This has led to an
increase in farm drainage and has contributed to the ever increasing productivity
in American agriculture.
AND COMMERCIAL BUILDINGS. Early in the history of corrugated
polyethylene tubing in this county, architects and engineers recognized
its value for many applications around residential and commercial buildings.
These various applications are illustrated in Figure 1.
EXTERIOR FOUNDATION DRAINS
are necessary for both residential and industrial buildings, below the
level of the lowest floor, where high water tables and rainwater result
in wet basements. These drains are placed to collect and channel water
away from footers and basement walls to a suitable outlet.
INTERIOR FOUNDATION DRAINS
are often necessary in areas where ground water is a problem. These drains
intercept water that otherwise would gain entry through the basement walls
DOWNSPOUT RUNOFF DRAINS
using corrugated plastic pipe channel water collected in the roof gutter
to areas away from the building. These can be discharged into storm sewers,
into the curb at the edge of the street, or into other suitable outlets.
in lawns or yards can be accomplished using surface inlets and corrugated
polyethylene tubing to collect and carry the water to a storm sewer or
other disposal area.
BASEMENT WINDOW WELL DRAINAGE
will prevent rain water from seeping down the foundation wall and entering
the basement. This is accomplished by running a length of non-perforated
tubing from the drain in the bottom of the well to the disposal area.
DRIVEWAY AND SIDEWALK UNDERDRAINAGE
is used to prevent frost damage or pavement deterioration due to unstable
bases. Installation of perforated drainage tubing in a bed of gravel allows
the water to drain out of the base course and be channeled away form the
POLYETHYLENE CULVERT PIPE is also available in larger
sized (up to 24-inch diameter) for culvert applications including use
around commercial and residential buildings. The load bearing capability
in combination with a "select" envelope and the resistance of
polyethylene pipe to chemical attack and abrasion have led to its wide-spread
use in this application. See Fig. 3 for installation guidelines.
GOLF COURSE AND ATHLETIC
FIELDS. Golf courses and landscape architects have long
understood the benefits or proper drainage for heavily used turf. A well
designed drainage system provides for the rapid removal of excess water
to maximize playing time and minimize damage to tees, greens and fairways.
Corrugated polyethylene tubing has become the predominate drainage material
used for gold courses, athletic fields and other high-use turf areas.
