Reinforced 100% Polyethylene Pipe with Intergral Threaded Connectors. The first truly manageable pipe for Leach Pads. FlatNet™ is a replacement for existing Lay Flat, PVC and PE Pipes and for use in new installations.
FlatNet's flat and compact coil design makes it easier to work with on the pad and reduces freight, storage and handling costs. It's lightweight and flexible - up to 80% lighter than other types of distribution pipe. FlatNet conforms to odd shapes and layouts. Its easy coiling allows for transportation from one location to another. Rolls layout manually or by machine and can be retrieved with mechanized equipment.
As with other types of pipe, FlatNet can be damaged by dragging it over rough surfaces. To maximize life expectancy when installing or reinstalling, Netafim recommends laying the FlatNet out by uncoiling or unfolding it directly where it will be located. Do NOT uncoil FlatNet from a stationary reel and drag it across the pad.
When removing the pipe, to avoid damage and make it easy to transport and store, Netafim recommends folding or coiling it from the end without dragging it. Either of these methods will help empty the pipe of residual liquid and protect it from damage.
