Inlet Structures

Impermeable, paved surfaces create storm water run off management challenges, and increasingly require surface inlet structures for mitigation. Strong, dependable and economical, ADS provides various drainage inlet structures to meet the specifier's needs while considering easy installation for the contractor. Constructed from engineered plastics, these drainage structures provide a superior corrosion and abrasion-resistant alternative to cumbersome concrete boxes or metal structures.


Improving the infiltration capabilities of ground surfaces can often be achieved with the use of basins and piping that temporarily hold storm water runoff until the surrounding ground is capable of taking on the storm water infiltration. ADS products specially designed to facilitate infiltration include:

HWY Edge Drains

Highways are the arteries of our nation's transportation system, and need to be subsurface drained quickly when heavy rain and precipitation events take place. Constant pounding of traffic loads on saturated subsurface undermine your pavement structure causing cracks and blowouts. Season freezing and thawing in these conditions will further exacerbate the problem. Advanced Drainage Systems offers our AdvanEDGE® pipe, a panel-shaped, geo-composite pipe specially engineered for highway edge drains where a quick drainage response is required.

Grease Trap

ADS Grease Interceptor Tanks are the superior solution for foodservice applications to capture corrosive discharges found in food waste. In addition to being ASTM F2649 certified, ADS tanks are watertight and are made of HDPE pipe to ensure longevity. ADS tanks come ready to install and are available in 750, 1000, 1500 and 2000 gallon capacities.

Grain Aeration

Grain aeration keeps storage drier longer, which means less waste. The process keeps the stored grain at a cool and steady temperature. By consistently moving air through grain stores, the rate of grain deterioration caused by moisture or mold is lessened. Grain aeration also helps prevent spoilage losses as a result of insect populations. The most cost-effective grain aeration system is made with Grain-Aire® pipe.

Golf Course Drainage

Engineered drainage systems play a key role in the longevity and quality of golf courses, athletic fields, parks and other recreational areas. For decades, ADS has been providing polyethylene drainage products to specifying engineers and turf contractors. ADS has solutions for every course; our products include Nyloplast, ADS PolyFlex™, AdvanEdge®, MEGA GREEN™, N-12® and Single Wall pipe.

Geosynthetics Applications

Matching the right fabric to a specific application is paramount for the success of any project. ADS provides the widest variety of woven and non-woven geosynthetic materials in the industry to meet drainage, separation, stabilization and soil reinforcement needs.

Foundation Drainage

Good subsurface drainage protects the home in critical ways, from keeping moisture out of foundations and basements, to preventing small “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.
