Product Overview

Eliminate standing water on hardscapes before it damages your property. The 3 in. Pro Series Channel Drain is ideal for draining moderate water flows flooding surfaces such as driveways, concrete and paver patios, courtyards, and walkways. Multipack comes with three 3 in. Pro Series Channel Drain Kits, and each kit includes a 4-1/8 in. deep polypropylene channel with bottom outlet, gray polyethylene grate, end cap/outlet, end cap. Modular design with interlocking joints for easy connections. Channels connect together for longer runs and can be cut to lengths as short as 4 in. using the saw guide found between the rib and stabilizing rib. Channel drains, also called trench drains, are long, narrow drains that collect and convey surface water 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. NDS channel and trench drains are designed for durability, drainage, and performance, and are a proven alternative to traditional concrete drains. Find the best channel drain or trench drain system for your needs with the NDS Channel Drain Selector tool at ndspro.com/choose-the-right-channel-drain.html. Founded in 1972, NDS is the leader in stormwater management solutions, the preferred choice of professionals, and the largest supplier of channel drains in North America.

Can you cut this in half ?

Asked by Don November 18, 2020

Answer

Yes you could cut it in half but it would not function as intended. If you cut it in half the cut end would be completely open and the end piece could not be reinstalled.

The general rule for all channel drain is that it should be installed in new concrete. If there will be vehicles driving over the drain it is imperative that the channel drain be set in a minimum of 4" of concrete on each side and below. It should also be recessed below the finished grade at a bout 1/8" to 1/4".

I took it out with a blade.

How do I remove the end pop out?

Asked by Jazzie August 21, 2020
1
Answer

It can be removed by pulling upwards on the fitting. It is held in by overlapping plastic restrictions which hold the end in place so you have to work at it a bit.

If I need to cut a section of drain ,what do I do about connecting an end cap if it is not at the tongue and groove location ?

Asked by ST July 30, 2020

Answer

The end cap can be placed on the end of the channel and fastened to the edge of the channel using small self tapping screws.

This is a very easy to assemble and install drain kit, They are efficient, easy to use and will decrease installation time. They quickly remove water from hardscapes as perimeter drains and direct it away from building structures or any other area requiring surface drainage. It just sucks up the water and drains if you have the proper slope for the drainage pipes.

Beware of Side Drain!
I went to HD to purchase a cube style yard drain sump. When I saw this, I figured it would work without having to dig a deep hole (we have lots of limestone in Central Texas). So I went with it. The first problem is what pipe to connect to it. The side outlet plate has a sealed over 2 ½ OD (approx) male nipple labeled “knock out”. No coupling, pipe or adapter fits over it. My best guess was to remove the knock out and insert a 2” coupling. The problem would be that there would be no mechanical or friction seal. Once home I tried to remove the knock out. It does not knock out. It can't be cut out with a razor knife. So, I used a rotary cutting tool to grind out the end, then finished it off with a drum sanding bit. I was able to get a snug fit, but there was no structural support. Finally, using pop rivets and silicone, the pvc coupling was secured and water tight. The second problem is that there in no way to positively attach the side drain plate. The material is polypropylene so PVC adhesive will stick it together but not structurally. Also you have to cut off two posts off one of the grills. Not a big deal, but the end plate could have had holes drill ed to accept these posts. After completing the site prep and dirt work, I installed using a decomposed granite base and a topping of Quickrete. The end cap problem is now a non-issue as everything is encapsulated. Would I recommend the product? Yes, but only if you can handle handyman fabrication work. This is not for for someone that does not own a die grinder or drill press!
