Underground Drainage (101)

Proper underground drainage is essential for the stability of any structure. Rona offers high-quality underground drainage fittings that are crucial to achieving a system that works properly. From mole pipes to sump pump basins and drain covers, each piece works with the rest to keep the overall system flowing. Whether the job calls for an underground soil pipe or new drains and accessories, choosing compatible parts makes all the difference. Find the right fittings, piping, and septic tanks and accessories to move or keep liquids where they belong.
An underground drainage system is a significant part of the structure of a house, and its effectiveness is important to the health of the inhabitants. Rona offers a great variety of top-notch products, including pipes, catch basins, drains, and underground drainage fittings. When looking for an underground soil pipe, corrugated pipe containing high-density polyethylene is a smart choice. Find it in varying lengths, from 10 to 1,000 feet. The longer the coil is, the less work involved during installation because it requires fewer couplings. 

When shopping drain and sewer pipes, expect them to be a great deal more rigid and made with materials such as ABS and PVC. While installing these requires more effort, they work well when you need to maintain a continuous slope. Use connections made with ABS or PVC for a watertight result, as these can be solvent welded or glued together.

To complete the underground drainage system, select a catch basin. These get rid of surface water and can usually be found in low areas of the landscape. Great examples of places where they go are driveways and parking lots. Expect basins to come in a variety of materials, from brass to brick or cast iron.

There are several configurations of grates available. Round grates are typically used in landscapes, while square grates work well for pavement applications. Atrium grates fit in places where debris often leads to clogging of a normal grate. They work in window wells and planter beds. For the collection of runoff water for hardscapes, opt for channel models such as storm drains. These systems offer more open surface area when compared to basins. They’re also good for work areas that are large and flat, such as those made from brick or concrete. Remember to check your local building regulations before starting work on a drainage project.
