High Flow Drainage Systems

Royal Blue solid and Royal Blue High Octane pipe
high octane drainage

We are proud to be the leading landscape company in California to offer Royal Blue dual wall and Royal Blue High Octane, eight slot high flow drainage pipe to our clients. Designed and distributed by French Drain Man (Almont, MI), this super flow pipe is the best on the market for yard drain and french drain systems. Superior water flow and strength compared to any other pipe available. This dual wall corrugated pipe is truly incredible for removing surface and ground water. Not only superior in quality and strength, but leading the industry in the green movement to limit PVC installation for drain systems.

PVC has chemicals that are believed to be harmful to plants and animals. This high quality HDPE material does not contain the same harmful chemicals, thus being a far better option to PVC. As well, this pipe outperforms ADS pipe in all catagories regarding strength and water intake. We endorse French Drain Man (Almont, MI) for their installation practices of this pipe which can be viewed on YouTube. Great work FDM for developing this eco-friendly, high flow, superior strength product. They also have a full line of cutting edge drainage products, including catch basins, gutter cleanouts, pop emitters and more! Call us today for more information and to schedule an appointment.

What Our Customers Are Saying

From Customer Lobby Reviews

In December 2023, we closed on a new ranch-style house in Carmichael built in 1960. Soon after, a remodeling contractor identified three downspouts that emptied directly under the backyard deck just behind the house. Then the rains came; heavy. Much of the water collected and pooled in the crawlspace under the master bedroom. We were stunned and this nondisclosed defect. Internet researched revealed Brent Bennet and his company, Older Home Specialists. Brent came out immediately, inspected the conditions, scoped out a drainage solution, and got right to work. He prioritized our project due to the seriousness of the problem (others being landscaping without the same urgency). His bid was extremely fair and his project delivery was without unnecessary delay. As the project unfolded, he advised of another source of waterflow from a neighbor’s upslope property and immediately developed a solution (French drain) using innovative corrugate pipe. After both drainage systems were installed, Brent inspected the performance several times to assure water was flowing away from our house and into the sump pump he designed to pump water to the county drainage culvert beyond our property. Brent was extremely professional; responsive to all questions; fair in his pricing; and trustworthy at every stage of this very challenging problem at our new house. We recommend Brent for his professional contractor services without reservation.
