Interesting Uses of HDPE/N-12 Corrugated Dual Wall Pipe

The Many Uses & Unique Characteristics of HDPE/N-12 Corrugated Dual Wall Pipe

(West Chester Machinery, Flanders NJ) – HDPE (High-density polyethylene) is a very versatile material. It has ideal characteristics for use in water flow management in underground structures. HDPE corrugated pipe is relatively lightweight which allows for easier and less costly transportation and installation costs.

Relaxes Under Stress and Has Ideal Properties for Water Handling.

HDPE is not brittle and therefore not susceptible to cracking during pipe handling and installation. HDPE Pipe has a smooth interior surface, which is resistant to abrasion, corrosion and chemical scouring.

Pipe-of-Choice for Many Storm Water Applications

The smooth interior surface provides excellent pipeline flow characteristics which are perfect for sustainable solutions for stormwater runoff.  HDPE pipe is structurally strong and has the ability to support large loads such as highway traffic when installed properly.

HDPE/N 12 Corrugated Dual Wall Pipe Is Often Used for Sub-Drainage Systems

Often, HDPE/ N-12 Corrugated Dual Wall Pipe is used for sub-drainage systems to lower the groundwater table.  HDPE/ N-12 pipe are also are used to control and direct underground water transport and to encourage proper surface water percolation in golf courses, athletic fields, hillside development projects and in agricultural fields.

Other uses of HDPE/N-12 Corrugated Dual Wall Pipe:

(1) Sanitary Sewers – HDPE pipe is an ideal septic system leach pipeline material.


(2) Leachate Collection
 – The mining industry has a special application of sub-drainage called heap leaching which is used to recover low-grade deposits of copper, gold, and silver.


(3) Detention/Retention Storm Water Management Systems
 – helps limit the rate of stormwater runoff as well as the level of pollutants.


(4) HDPE Roof Leader and Landscape Area Drainage
 – Residential, industrial and commercial buildings all have demand for roof leader and landscape area drainage facilities and landscape area drainage facilities.


(5) Ventilation Systems 
– Perforated corrugated HDPE pipe also has become the product of choice for ventilation systems in the bottom of grain storage bins and under a filter media to remove contaminant particles.

(6) Earth Cooling Tubes – HDPE Pipe is also used as an alternative to conventional air conditioning by moving warm air through cool earth to achieve a cooling effect.


(7) Floating Systems
 – HDPE is resistant to corrosion and chemical attack. These properties, along with its relatively lightweight, has allowed it to be used as a holding vessel for floats. A common use of these HDPE Pipe floats is as pontoons for floating boat docks.


(8) Relining of Failed Pipes with Corrugated HDPE
 – Corrugated HDPE pipe can be used as a structural insert inside failing culverts, storm drains or sewers made of corrugated metal or concrete.


(9) Aeration in Sewer Sludge Composting
 – Perforated corrugated polyethylene pipe is an integral component when composting sewer sludge. The perforations allow controlled aeration of the sludge.

Plastic Drainage Pipes – What Are the Different Types and Strengths?

Plastic Drainage Pipes – What Are the Different Types and Strengths?

Plastic Drainage Pipes

Plastic drainage pipes are used to move water and other liquid material from one place to another. There are many different types and grades (strengths) of pipe. Some of the more common types associated with outdoor landscaping are detailed below. Some have smooth inner and outer walls, and some may be corrugated. Each type has a purpose and the correct type should be used for the particular application.

Weather Resilient

All the types of plastic drainage pipes are resilient to all the weather conditions excluding the most extreme conditions. Plastic pipes are the preferred drainage pipe due to its versatility and availability. It is lightweight and easy to use for installation. There are several plastic drainage pipes to serve different purposes and they come in various diameter sizes to accommodate different amounts of water. The most common diameter used for outdoor landscape projects is a 4-inch diameter pipe.

Here is some basic info about drainage pipes according to strength:

The N-12 pipes have a smooth interior wall and a corrugated exterior wall and are exceptionally strong.

HDPE/N 12 Corrugated Dual Wall Pipe – Strongest

It is built using polyethylene of high density, in layman’s terms, really strong plastic. The N-12 pipes have a smooth interior wall and a corrugated exterior wall and are exceptionally strong. This pipe is equivalent in strength to concrete pipe, although lighter in weight and much easier to cut, and more economical as well. It can be used in multiple applications but more commonly where a high strength rating is required. For example, a commercial driveway where trucks would be driving over the area where the pipe is underground. Due to the lighter weight, the HDPE pipes have less handling concerns and there is no requirement for heavy lifting equipment to move it, especially if larger diameter pipes are needed. It can be cut with a basic PVC saw or reciprocating saw. The price is typically considerably less than concrete pipe, especially with labor installation time considered.

The SDR 35 PVC drainage pipes are mainly used for the purpose of municipal sewer systems

SDR 35 Sewer Main Pipe

The SDR 35 PVC drainage pipes are mainly used for the purpose of municipal sewer systems, but can be used for other applications as well. In regards to storm water management it is most commonly used when a contractor would like to or needs to have a stronger pipe with a smooth outer and inner wall compared to schedule 20 pipe, mentioned below. The size for SDR 35 PVC pipes begins at 4 inches and can go up to 3 feet in diameter. However, most residential applications will not exceed the need for a 6-inch diameter. SDR pipe does have a reputation for being cumbersome to install due to the rubber gasket connection, however that flaw is overshadowed due to its price and availability. Although not as strong as N12 or Schedule 40 it is more than adequate for the bulk of residential and light commercial applications.

Schedule 20 sewer and drain pipe is the most common pipe used for the drainage and storm water applications.

Schedule 20 Sewer Drainage Pipes

Schedule 20 sewer and drain pipe is the most common pipe used for the drainage and storm water applications. The wall of this pipe would be considered light duty but can still handle the common loads of pressure that are encountered in most residential landscape projects. Cost is very reasonable for this pipe, another reason it is very commonly used. The outer diameter of Schedule 20 pipes is also the same as that of schedule 35. The fittings are interchangeable with each other which adds to the versatility of this and SDR 35 pipe. It is recommended to use where any type of vehicular traffic would not cross the area. At that point a transition can be made to SDR 35 to withstand areas where that traffic may cross.

Schedule 20 sewer and drain pipe is the most common pipe used for the drainage and storm water applications.

Schedule 40 Sewer Drainage Pipes

The Schedule 40 Drainage pipes are used widely across the world, mostly for indoor plumbing applications, however they are also used outdoors for various landscape projects. It is a higher strength, rigid pipe with a smooth inner and outer wall. When strength is needed, it would be more economical to use N-12 pipe, but on some projects schedule 40 fits the need better due to the smooth outside wall, which allows for a more common adaptability to the lighter duty pipes that will be mentioned in this blog. Many customers also prefer the look of the smooth white pipe if there are areas where the pipe is to be exposed, such as where a gutter downspout connects to the plumbing system and the is exposed above the grade.

Due to its low wall strength this pipe is extremely flexible and typically comes in 100 ft coils.

Corrugated Flexible Drainage Pipes

In terms of strength, this pipe would be at the bottom of the scale. However, the price is the most cost effective if there is no need for a sturdier choice of pipe. Due to its low wall strength this pipe is extremely flexible and typically comes in 100 ft coils. The most common application this pipe is used for is a French Drain which would be a perforated version of this pipe, but there are other uses for it as well. Such as retaining wall drainage, or on properties where there would be many turns in order to run the pipe to its final drain point, or “daylight”. The flexibility allows for these turns without having to use many fittings like all of the previous pipes mentioned would. This saves installation labor as well as cost due to the lack of fittings needed.
