About This Product

The Micro Channel Drain Coupling is the building block of your Micro Channel drain system. Made of polyvinyl chloride, it fits inside the channel and connects channel sections, bottom and side outlets, elbows, tees, and cleanout parts to build your custom drain system. Channel drains, also known as trench drains, are long, narrow drains that capture rainfall and runoff from surrounding surfaces. Water is directed to drain pipes, which carry the water downstream to discharge with a pop-up emitter, or to percolate into the ground with a dry well or infiltration trench. Micro Channel Drains are ideal for light flows from pool and spa decks, concrete and paver patios, and walkways to prevent mildew growth, concrete staining, and costly structural damage. Made of polyvinyl chloride. Design the micro drain system with 45º and 90º elbows and tees to make easy turns; bottom, side and end outlets to direct water to drain pipe. For cleaning and maintenance, install Micro Channel Cleanouts along the length of the deck drain - tops remove so you can clean out debris. NDS offers free tools such as the Channel Drain Selector, Home Drainage Center, and NDS Stormwater Drainage mobile app to help make your project a success. Founded in 1972, NDS is the preferred choice of professionals and the leader in stormwater management solutions with proven products, tools, and support to help you get the job done right.

Answer This Question

A:  Hi Tony, the item in question is an internal coupling. The Micro Channel Drain is an Extruded-Plastic Profile Channel, which means the top is not removable.

    I used it for where my yard meets the sidewalk. Served it's purpose but could be a little more stout. The 4' runs were bowed and twisted off the rack.

    Excellent Results In Desert Climate
    We live in the Southern California Desert, so we are lucky if we get 1" of rain every year. So with that said, this is mostly used to collect and divert water splashed out of the pool and hose water off of concrete patios. For this application, it is by far the best value. I installed 60' of the Micro Channel on one project and 45' on another. Both went the entire length of the patio and after three years, the first one still looks brand new (as does the second one which was just finished). Each piece of the Micro Channel comes with this Coupling, but when you need extra for various reasons, they are handy to have. The bottom drain outlet worked great (you will need a 1 1/2" Female PVC Coupling to connect the PVC to this). When small debris end up inside this piece, the water can get backed up. Although it only takes the hose with a stream nozzle right against the top of this piece to dislodge anything, and clear the back up. Also, this is PVC, so typical PVC Glue works great which is a huge plus! Cheers!
