Plastic Drain
Channel Drains are a economical alternative to precast concrete drains. Light weight and easy to install. UV inhibitors in the grates, channel and component parts prevents fading and cracking from the sun. All plastic grate and channel components are chemically resistant, rust proof and maintenance free. Channel Drains operate on the same principal as a roof gutter. Mini, Spee-D and Micro drains connect like PVC pipe. Pro Series injected Molded Channel have mechanical interlocking joints. The channels easily connect to sewer and drain pipe fittings or SCH 40 pipe and fittings. This system also offers a choice of outlets. Water can be evacuated from the bottom or from the end of the channel. It eliminates grading a deck surface to a low area. Instead, the deck is gradually sloped in one direction or plane, and the channel drain acts as a perimeter drain to the edge of the slope. Most hardscapes experience more runoff than landscapes due to the lack of water absorption. Channel Drain systems provide more overall open surface area than conventional area grates. Spee-D and Pro Series will handle light automobile traffic at low speeds. Mini and Micro are designed for foot traffic applications only. For specific load information, contact Masons Supply.

Installation Procedures

1.

Locate lowest spot or any area where excess water will accumulate.

2.

Dig trench wide enough to allow for 3" of back fill on each side of Spee-D, 2" for Mini Channel, 1" for Micro Channel and 4" for Pro Series. Dig trench deep enough for overall height of channel and grate plus 3" for Spee-d, 2" for Mini, 1" for Micro and 4" for Pro Series. Allow 1/4" recess of grate below surface level for additional drainage.

3.

Backfill trench with either concrete or sand and tamp thoroughly. This allows for a level base and provides support. Concrete is always recommended for automobile traffic applications. (NOTE: Trench bed must be compacted prior to installing channel.)

4.

Measure and cut channel with fine tooth saw to desired length and remove burrs. Assemble channel, using couplings and channel accessories. Test for accurate measurements by placing channel in trench. (NOTE: You must allow for bottom or end outlets to connect to sewer and drain pipes).

5.

Disassemble channel drain and apply PVC primer and PVC cement to all joints. Reassemble channel joints. Allow cement to dry thoroughly.

 

6.

Install grate on channel. Completely cover grate with duct tape.

(NOTE: Grate must be on channel prior to installation to prevent deflection by concrete).
