ADS

ADS helps to protect the property and peace of mind of homeowners and commercial property owners across the country with superior drainage products.

Residential customers use ADS single wall corrugated polyethylene pipe, AdvanEDGE® flat pipe, or N-12® pipe and fittings in a myriad of applications: as foundation drains to help keep basements dry; as outlet drains from downspouts and basement window wells; for drainage of low spots in the yard; as driveway or sidewalk underdrains, and culverts to prevent pavement damage due to unstable bedding or frost heaving.

For commercial buildings including; office structures, schools, hospitals, retail outlets and restaurants, our single wall or N-12 small diameter pipe and fittings form a complete drainage system from the top of the building to the storm sewers. Made from high density polyethylene, our pipe offers significant benefits over PVC pipe such as: better impact strength during shipping and handling, no edge beveling, no special adapters, and better chemical and abrasion resistance.
