Frequently Asked Questions

What is the difference between the Royal Blue High Octane 8-slot 4” pipe and the Yellow Premium 8-slot pipe?
The Yellow Premium pipe has 11.5” of inlet per linear foot, it has been designed to move water quickly and efficiently. This pipe can be installed by hand or by machine.

The Royal Blue High Octane has a massive 17.25” of inlet per linear foot, it has been purpose built for home use and to be installed by hand.

Why should I use High Octane weeping tile?
Yard drains have shorter runs hence the benefit of more inlets to move the water faster to avoid standing water and possibly flooding issues.
How much water does the 4” pipe move?
The 4” pipe can move up to 240 gallons per minute of constant water flow.
How much water does the non-woven geo-textile fabric move?
The 4oz non-woven geotextile fabric can move 140 gallons per minute, per square foot when installed the French Drain Man way.
What kind of rock should I use?
We recommend that you use 1” – 2” round rock that has been screened and washed to prevent any contaminants getting into your system before you are finished creating it.
How deep should a french drain trench be and what degree slope?

The French Drain Man recommends a 14” minimum depth for the trench with a 2 degree slope to move water the fastest with the Baughman High Octane.
