Poly Drainage Pipe

Unlock the Benefits of Poly Drainage Pipe with G&M Poly Irrigation

For everything from installation, to performance, to longevity, poly drainage pipe is a strong option for building drainage pipes and other structures. At G&M Poly Irrigation, we work with clients to help them unlock the considerable benefits of polyethylene drainage systems.

Common Mistakes People Make Regarding Commercial Drainage Solutions

When it comes to designing drainage solutions for commercial developments, mining sites, agricultural operations, landfills, highways and other public works projects, water retention or detention zones, residential properties, or other applications, there are always assumptions that tend to lead project managers and designers astray. Here are a few of the common mistakes to avoid when designing surface or subsurface drainage solutions:

  • Assuming that poly pipe isn’t strong enough: Because polyethylene is a plastic, many people assume that it doesn’t offer the strength that steel or other types of metal drainage pipes would. In reality, poly is extremely tough and durable—especially high-density polyethylene (HDPE).

  • Not considering site requirements: Especially if you are installing a deep subsurface drainage solution, poly pipe is essential for structural integrity. Studies have shown that rigid metal pipes will often crack or break when installed deep underground or in very cold climates. HDPE’s flexibility is hugely beneficial here, as this material can bear heavy loads of soil or rock, as well as extremely cold temperatures without breaking.

  • Not embracing custom fabrication: If you do decide to use poly drainage pipe for your project, choose a company that will work with you to design and fabricate a custom drainage system. At G&M Poly Irrigation, we are that company, offering pipe of various styles and diameters and providing onsite welding to ensure the correct lengths.

The biggest mistake in designing a drainage system is overlooking the favourable properties of polyethylene. When you work with G&M Poly Irrigation, we help you avoid those pitfalls.

Benefits of Poly Drainage Pipe

Here are a few of the other advantages that make poly pipe ideal for use as a subsurface or surface drainage system.

  • It is lightweight: Not only does steel pipe run the risk of cracking under heavy loads, but it is also considerably more difficult to install. HDPE weighs 50 to 75 percent less than steel piping and about 90 percent less than concrete. It is easier to handle, transport and fit, leading to lower installation and construction costs.

  • It is versatile: Virtually any drainage system can work with HDPE. Perhaps you need a land drainage pipe for your farm, or maybe you are designing a project that requires a drainage system for a low-lying roadway. G&M Poly Irrigation has designed poly solutions for a wide range of drainage and filtration applications.

  • It is durable: Failed drainage systems can lead to big messes, considerable property damage and sizable replacement or repair costs. Polyethylene is exceptionally durable and long-lasting, which helps prevent these potential outcomes.
