Stormwater runoff is commonly one of the biggest causes of excessive inflow and infiltration issues. To combat that issue, Advanced Drainage Systems has released the Nyloplast 12-inch universal inline drain solution designed for contractors seeking a durable and water-tight pipe fitting for stormwater inlets.

Common applications include commercial settings, academic institutions, sports and turf fields, big box retail and grocery, multi-family and mixed-use development projects, warehouses and large manufacturing plants. The product, which easily connects to round, dome and square grates of various designs, comes standard with a 6-inch hole designed to match the grate inlet capacity and allowing the end user to install without any additional effort. The product can be easily adjusted on site and connects with all commonly used types of plastic pipes up to 12-inch diameter. Brian King, executive vice president of product management, marketing and sustainability, Advanced Drainage Systems, notes that the drain fitting shouldn’t be complicated to install and maintain.

“It became quickly apparent in our discussions with contractors and engineers that a gap existed for a universal inline drain product that was readily available, easy to install and reliable beyond a handful of years,” says King. “We are pleased to meet the market need with a Nyloplast solution delivering an easy, clean and speedy installation experience that can accelerate a project timeline and preclude additional cost associated with delays and repairs.”

The lightweight product uses injection molded consistency to enhance performance and life cycle. It has 100-year service life, maintains an H20 load rating, provides a water-tight connection and features a sloped bottom to promote positive drainage flow. Installation doesn’t require use of grout or long curing times. An oscillating saw is recommended for coring of the 6-inch hole to either 8 or 10 inches when connecting to larger inlet grates. Advanced Drainage Systems provides various levels of training and continuous education opportunities for contactors using the Nyloplast universal inline drain, and provides local product specialists on site as necessary to ensure each project runs smoothly.

 “This inline drain provides distributors with a universal solution that brings their customers project flexibility and reliable performance for stormwater management,” King says. “The product’s versatility reduces SKUs while advancing distributors’ value to contractors seeking a quality and quick, hassle-free inlet connection for same-day pickup.” 800-821-6710;
