All you need to know about Land Drainage Pipes

Committed to producing high-quality land drainage pipes, Total Pipeline Systems aim to satisfy all drainage needs and wants. Our drainage pipes are either perforated or unperforated, it merely depends on your specific requirements.

What are Land Drainage Pipes?

The purpose of land drainage pipes is to manage land water. They are often used in areas that are susceptible to poor water drainage and for various agricultural applications. Any of the drainage pipes that we supply at Total Pipeline Systems are manufactured with your needs in mind.

Land drainage pipes can also be used for crop production and waterlogged pitches, allowing water to filter slowly into the ground, for crops to receive the nutrients that they need and to ensure pitches drain efficiently.

Any of the land drainage pipes are designed to be distinctive. They are long pipes that tend to be perforated and buried beneath the ground (we even supply them unperforated too).

Who uses Land Drainage?

The drainage pipes that we provide at Total Pipes are suitable for an array of customers, including the following:

  • Farmers
  • Landscapers or Gardeners
  • Housing Developers
  • Flood Prevention Works

How do they work?

More often than not, land drains are designed to cure areas that are waterlogged. Whether it be farmland, gardens or sports fields, a land drainage pipe will protect your land from flooding, ensuring that all rainfall drains effectively.

As rain falls on the ground, it seeps into the ground. The simple addition of land drainage pipes allows water to reach perforations with ease, which then enables water to be swept down the gentle gradient until it reaches the soakaway or sewage system.

The land drains encourage water to flow easily, preventing any blockages in the pipeline.

There are countless ways that you could benefit from the land drainage pipes that we supply; one of the main ones being to enhance safety and to sustain the quality of your crops.

Types of Land Drainage.

Here at Total Pipes, we have a complete range of land drainage pipes available for you to choose from. With varying dimensions, our drainage pipes are designed to fit your drainage needs perfectly.

When choosing land drainage pipes, it simply depends on the conditions of the area and the drainage characteristics, as well as the rainfall and soil.

We supply land drainage and perforated pipes in a wide range of diameters, including 60mm, 80mm, and 100mm, so you needn’t worry about finding products that match your exact specification. If you require a larger diameter, this is not a problem for us at Total Pipes. Feel free to get in touch with our team of experts today to discuss your specific needs in further detail!

At Total Pipes, we supply Multi Junctions which can easily join land drainage pipes from different sources. These are designed to adjust to the diameter of drainage pipes, ensuring that they fit neatly.

Like any of the products that we have available, our land drainage pipes pay close attention to detail, meeting and exceeding the highest quality standards. No matter which of the drainage pipes and fittings you choose, they can all be buried under the ground with ease, making them simple yet effective.

Planning and Installing Land Drainage Pipes.

Investing in land drainage pipes will enable you to prepare for the winter, potentially preventing flooding.

To make sure that you have the correct land drainage pipes, it’s always better to plan your project in advance. Not only will accurate planning make the installation of drainage pipes efficient, it will allow you to complete your project sooner.

You need to acquire only the most suitable products to simplify the installation process. For homes and gardens, the affected areas should be no more than 2m away from a land drainage pipe.

When excavating, the trench needs to be big enough. To install the drainage pipes, you need to carefully cut the turf so that it can be re-laid. The Herringbone pattern is often used for the installation of the land drains, essentially creating branches.

By installing the drainage pipes correctly, you have the opportunity to increase crop yield and enhance safety.
