Installation Instructions

  • QuickDrain comes in easy-to-handle 2.5 metre lengths. Each length comes with a QuickDrain Joiner and cable tie.
  • Dig your trench the same width as your QuickDrain and deep enough to allow a minimum of 200mm of soil coverage.
  • Simply clip the length together to achieve the required length for your project. Once the QuickDrain has been laid in the trench you are ready to start covering the QuickDrain.

Once QuickDrain is buried it will last 50+ years as it is produced from HDPE plastic, recycled polystyrene and PET fibre, however the drainage performance will be dependent on the overall design.

When laying QuickDrain please ensure it has a fall. Make sure it is directed to the lowest point of your property and is connected to a stormwater outlet. Exposure of QuickDrain to sunlight for prolonged periods should be avoided.
