Dual Walled Tile Provides Better Drainage
The MaxFlex features an inner flexible wall instead of a solid single wall, which increases flow rates by as much as 30 percent by eliminating friction against the single outer wall.
Two special blends of HDPE plastic resin are used in the pipe makeup to let it bend enough for transporting in a coil.
Tile is available in 8, 10, 12 and 15-in. diameters ranging from 220 ft. to 690 ft. in length.
The MaxFlex can be placed into the ground behind a conventional trencher or tile plow. Timewell recommends a cutting width roughly 25 percent (or 3 in.) wider than the pipe’s outside diameter to effectively clear away enough soil to accommodate the trailing boot size.
Burial depths are impacted by compaction and backfill quality but are recommended at up to 8 ft.
The boot’s internal pipe path should feature a minimum bend radius of 50 in. for a smooth transition during installation.
Timewell emphasizes that like any single wall piping, care should be taken to eliminate stretching as this can reduce strength and decrease longevity and effectiveness.
They deliver their drainage pipes, fittings and accessories throughout the Midwest and Southern U.S.
