PVC Drainage Pipes

Flex or PVC Drainage Pipes

You may notice black pipes connected to downspouts, extending in a yard. These pipes are called flex drainage pipes and are a great way to manage drainage from your gutters to your yard and then away from your lawn. These pipes come in handy because they are flexible and you can adjust the path of water drainage. Depending on how your yard is graded, you can use a flex drain pipe to push water out and down the grade.  Using flex or PVC drainage pipes has many benefits.

Benefits of Using Flexible PVC Drainage Pipes

Positioning drainage pipes at the proper slope is very important. If you don’t have the correct angles, water can pool or even back up, causing damage to your property. They also tend to stay in place more than other types of piping, reducing the need for repairs or replacing the moved pipes.
