5 inch Driveway Drainage Kit

The cost effective 5 inch channel drain kit is a great choice for homeowners and contractors alike.  With a durable construction, the 5 inch driveway drain kit is ideal for residential yards, pools and light commercial applications.

The interlocking components of our 5 inch driveway trench drain enable quick, easy connections. Each 4-foot-long section comes with a reversible ADA compliant grate, which can either be laid flat or flipped for a domed top surface.

Each 4-foot-long channel can be joined together to build a longer run or cut down in 12 inch increments.  Four drainage ports on each segment enable 3″ and 4″ Sch. 40 or 4″ SDR 35 connections.

Our 5 inch Driveway Drainage kit isn’t just a great design. It’s engineered with a smooth installation in mind.  Each channel segment includes eight (8) anchor positions for easy rebar attachment during installation.  There won’t be any floating when you install this drain.

At we pride ourselves on making driveway trench drains easy.  That means each 5 inch Driveway Drainage Kit ships complete with all the hardware necessary to fasten the grates and secure interlocking pieces.  With optional 90-degree corners and T-sections available on site, there is no need to visit the hardware store if you buy from!
