Baughman’s exclusive Poly-Drain® 8-Slot perforated corrugated drainage pipe is specially designed for the heavy clay soils. Providing an unprecedented 11.5 square inches of water inlet area with 8 rows of slots in every valley, this perforation style allows for maximum water inlet. The 8-Slot pipe is manufactured to an overall higher wall thickness than its counterparts to allow for the same strong stiffness as pipe with fewer perforations. Moves up to 240 gallons of water per minute.
Q. What is virgin PVC and why is it superior?
A. Neither post-consumer nor post-industrial recycled materials can ever achieve 100% of mechanical properties of virgin materials. The degradation of these properties has a direct effect on safety factors and long term performance measure such as fatigue. When it comes to underground drainage, you do not want degradation. Recycled materials are made of old food containers and can attract animals to chew it.
