Basement Drainage

ADS single wall or N-12® dual wall HDPE corrugated pipe can be installed in new or retrofit construction to prevent wet basements. The pipe can be installed outside the building (see Foundation Drains ) or inside the basement itself. When inside the structure, the pipe should be placed in the basement floor approximately one foot from the inside wall or in a cross pattern. The pipe should be installed in a gravel envelope, have a minimum grade and lead into a sump at one corner of the basement or to an outside drain.



ADS Home/Yard/Building Drainage Products

Good subsurface drainage protects the home in many ways, from keeping moisture out of foundations and basements, to preventing little “wetlands” from developing in low spots in the yard. ADS offers a complete line of corrugated polyethylene pipe and fittings through drainage contractors and for do-it-yourselfers through thousands of building supply stores, hardware stores, plumbing outlets and home centers.

  • N-12® (per AASHTO)
    This dual wall corrugated pipe has a smooth interior for excellent flow. Made from high density polyethylene, this lightweight pipe is easy to install and resistant to abrasion and corrosion. Available in 100 mm– 1500 mm diameters, N-12 pipe offers both soil tight and water tight joints making it an excellent alternative to corrugated steel or concrete pipe for culverts and driveway applications.

  • Fittings
    No pipe system could be complete without fittings, and ADS manufactures the broadest line of fittings in the industry to simplify installations for your drainage applications. For either single wall or N-12 dual wall pipe, ADS offers standard internal and external couplers, reducers, elbows, bends, tees, cross-tees, wyes, caps and plugs.

  • Nyloplast® Drainage Structures
    Constructed from heavy duty PVC, Nyloplast structures are the exceptional choice over heavy and cumbersome concrete manholes and drain basins. Drain basins, curb inlets, and inline drains are all easily installed with minimum equipment and manpower. Capable of handling H-20 loads, Nyloplast structures provide a watertight seal with excellent economics.

  • Single Wall
    Our standard pipe is lightweight, flexible and easy to install. It is offered in 75-600 mm diameters, and in straight lengths or coils for easy handling and installation with fewer joints. Available perforated for water collection and leaching, or non-perforated for application s such as moving downspout water to an outlet.

  • ADS Triple Wall® / Smoothwall
    A smooth interior and exterior wall is strengthened through a third corrugated middle wall providing a drainage pipe with superior beam strength, and excellent hydraulics. Incorporating an integral injection molded bell, this 3 m length pipe makes an excellent, impact resistant alternative to PVC pipe.

  • AdvanEdge®
    Used where very rapid drainage is required, AdvanEDGE pipe is a panel-shaped conduit with twice the surface area of comparable 100 mm round pipe. With its slim 40 mm profile, it is often used as an edge drain along building foundations and retaining walls.

  • N-12 MEGA GREEN™
    Offering a minimum recycled content of 40%, ADS MEGA GREEN HDPE pipe is the developer's and designer's choice for "green projects", helping you meet LEED requirements.

  • Meter Pits
    When it comes to selecting a meter pit, your demands are clear. You need a high-quality product designed for easy installation and performance without fail - in all kinds of weather and in all kinds of soils.
