DRAIN SLEEVE® FILTER
General Information

DRAIN-SLEEVE® filter sock prevents sand and silt from entering and clogging perforated drainage pipes.

DRAIN-SLEEVE® is recommended for the protection of all underground drainage systems in all soil types. It is particularly suited for use in sandy and silty soil conditions.

  • The durable, 100% polyester fabric is specifically designed to maintain water flow and prolong the life of your drainage system.
  • "Please note that Drain-Sleeve® is not recommended for use in small diameter leach bed systems unless approved by local on–site wastewater treatment authorities"

DRAIN-SLEEVE® is a low cost and timesaving alternative to backfilling with expensive, heavy, and sometimes hard to find granular backfill materials. The specially knit fabric allows very fine soil particles to pass through and into the perforated pipe that are subsequently discharged from the drainage pipe with the water. The remaining larger soil particles that are blocked from passing through the fabric, bridge against each other on the outer surface of the fabric. Like granular backfill materials, the bridging effect of these soil particles improves the permeability of the native backfill materials immediately surrounding the perforated drainage pipe.

DRAIN-SLEEVE® is recommended for use in all types of underground drainage systems including:
  • Foundation Drainage
  • Garden Drainage
  • Landscape Drainage
  • Driveway and Road Drainage
  • Sports Field Drainage
  • Agricultural Land Drainage
  • Anywhere that perforated drainage pipes are used
DRAIN-SLEEVE® can be used with all types of perforated drainage pipe materials including:
  • Corrugated polyethylene
  • Smooth–wall and Corrugated PVC and ABS
  • Corrugated Steel and Aluminum

DRAIN-SLEEVE® is easy to use, just pull it over the pipe like pulling on your socks. It is easily cut to the desired length, thereby eliminating waste.

DRAIN-SLEEVE® is now available with its own applicator tube (patent pending) to make the job even easier and quicker. Please click here for a demonstration.
