There are so many things that have a basic togetherness, when you name one the other pops into your mind. For example, cookies and milk, peanut butter and jelly (or banana, yum!), Tom and Jerry; you get the idea. In civil engineering, this is true too: slopes and erosion control, concrete and rebar, stormwater and storm sewer, storm sewer and manholes. That said, it should be known that when you think Contech Storm Sewer, you should also think: access manholes, detention connections, inlets, and Slotted Drain. All of these elements go together better than cookies and milk!
For many site designs, a stormwater storage location is thought of first, inlet locations next, then pipe to connect it all with access as needed. This often ends up with one material for the stormwater storage, a different material for the inlets and access points, and yet another material for the stormwater conveyance. That’s like Oreo’s and lemonade. It gets the job done, but it would have been so. much. better, with the milk.
Contech Corrugated Metal Pipe (CMP) is an efficient and cost-effective way to detain stormwater volumes underground. Contech ULTRA FLO® Storm Sewer (n = 0.012) is an efficient and cost-effective way to convey stormwater. Each of these systems can accommodate CMP risers for both inlets and access. Slotted Drain provides another option for efficient and cost effective stormwater capture from sheet flow. The best part, these all connect to each other in the same way. No dissimilar material connections. The contractor has the benefit of one supplier, which improves compatibility, shipping, and site connectivity. Additionally, with all of Contech’s in house design and construction support, you know that you are getting the best product solution for your site needs, that all elements are built as specified, and material that will provide the proper service life. That’s like getting cookies and milk, and dunking them too! Something to consider, the next time you are evaluating your site design options.
