DRAINTUBE SPORT - Drainage of sports fields


For more than 15 years, DRAINTUBE® SPORT has been used with success to drain synthetic or natural sports fields and FIFA 2 stars certified synthetic soccer fields. It replaces the drainage layer made of clean gravel material.

DRAINTUBE® SPORT drains the infiltrated water on the entire surface of the field and also acts as a separation layer between the sub-base and the foundation.

Unlike drainage solutions with trenches, the use of DRAINTUBE® SPORT limits the amount of earthwork required on the subgrade and thus prevents the formation of differential settlements and waves on the playing surface.

Connection to the main collector pipe using the Quick Connect system

The Quick Connect system connects the mini-pipes of the DRAINTUBE® SPORT directly to a main collector pipe. This allows for the replacement of the collector trenches when site conditions make their construction difficult. It also permits to better control the outflow.



  • Drainage and Filtration of rainwater
  • Faster water evacuation than a gravel layer
  • Proven solution for all types of sports surfaces (natural or synthetic)
  • Prevention of differential settlements (surface wave)
  • Savings on earthwork
  • Easy installation with a single product to unroll
  • Cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution as it replaces granular layers
