Perforated Pipe vs. Hydraway
Hydraway offers proven demonstrable advantages over traditional perforated pipe systems including higher inflow rate, superior compressive strength, and reduced maintenance.
Traditional perforated drain pipe systems certainly move water away from your infrastructure better than nothing at all, but why risk all of the potential drainage issues? Hydraway’s thermally bonded, needle-punctured construction not only enables high water inflow rates, but it prevents silt and dirt from clogging up the system.
What does this mean for the commercial contractor? Trust. Trust that the system will keep functioning at 100% after years of continuous use. Trust that your clients have one less thing to worry about with their investments in structures and fields. Trust that your reputation as a contractor isn’t at risk.
Hydraway is an advanced drainage system that represents a true departure from more conventional drainage products. As you know, water drainage is critical to maintaining investments in construction projects of almost any kind; so why not offer the very best?

The advantages of Hydraway over perforated, corrugated pipe systems are fairly simple to grasp. Hydraway’s design makes it easier to transit, easier to install, and better able to relieve hydrostatic pressure along with structures like retaining walls.
As a long-term drainage solution, Hydraway has proven advantages around the world. We’ve been installed in places such as university athletic fields and in civil applications ranging from parking lots to airport runways.
What’s the biggest differentiator here? Hydraway has never experienced a failure due to manufacturer defects or the fundamental design.
When rolled up into coils and transported, conventional perforated pipe systems often have physical memory when they arrive at the destination. When this is the case, not only can you fit less on a truck, but this memory complicates and prolongs the installation process. Instead of simply digging a trench, laying down the drainage system, and covering it with gravel in a typical French drain or other application, the process is extended because the ends of the pipe may curl up.
Hydraway comes in coils of up to 550 feet and transports with zero memory.
