What is Land Drainage Pipe?
Land drainage pipe, also known as land drainage coil, is used to prevent the build-up of excess water, which can lead to waterlogged sports pitches, poorer crop yields, erosion and environmental damage.
Our land drainage coil is designed to be flexible, durable and easy to install.
How does Land Drainage work?
Soil typically becomes saturated for one of two reasons. This is either due to the type of soil it is, such as clay, or excessive rainfall where no more water can be absorbed into the ground. Land drainage works by installing plastic land drainage coil underground. This alleviates excess water by allowing it to flow into and through a pipe, in areas that are waterlogged.
The land drain pipe will then direct the water to a nearby disposal point – such as a nearby stream, storm drain or soakaway system – to prevent a build-up of excess water.
What are the benefits of Land Drainage coils?
- Increase crop yields
Depending on the condition of the land, well-drained land can improve crop yields by as much as 150%.
- Improve soil quality for crops
Having well-drained soils is vital to the health of your crops. Benefits include good soil structure for root development and oxygen for organic material, an extension to the growing or grazing season etc.
- Prevent black grass
In order to tackle this tricky problem, it is important to improve and maintain good soil structure by ensuring your land is well drained.
- Prevent waterlogged sports pitches
Prevent lost revenues through waterlogged pitches by ensuring they can be used all year round.
What is perforated Land Drain coil?
Perforated land drainage pipe has tiny holes cut into the dwells of the coil. These holes are designed to allow surface water to flow through them and be collected. In farming, these coils help prevent fields from becoming waterlogged and improve soil quality as well as help prevent black grass. These coils are also used in sports fields to prevent wet spots and in construction to alleviate flooding.
What is unperforated Land Drain coil?
In contrast to the perforated coil, unperforated land drain coil is used to distribute collected surface water. They are used predominantly for attenuation where water is stored and directed to a watercourse, a soakaway system or water storage tank.
What sizes are available in Land Drainage Pipes?
Our land drainage pipe is available in sizes 60mm, 80mm, 100mm and 160mm. We also supply the supporting junctions, connectors and headwalls.
