DRAINTUBE FT - Leachate drainage on slopes


As part of the Leachate Collection and Removal System (LCRS), the leachate collection layer in the slopes of the cell limits the hydraulic head level over the liner system and provides a mechanical protection of the geomembrane during operation.

DRAINTUBE® FT drainage geocomposite is installed directly on the geomembrane on the slopes of the cell. It quickly drains the leachate and protects the geomembrane against puncture. DRAINTUBE® FT has a high and constant flow capacity, even under heavy loads.

Connection to the collector via the Quick Connect system

The Quick Connect system directly connects the mini-drains from the DRAINTUBE® FT to the main collector drain. In the event of gas drainage, it generates negative pressure in the entire system.



  • Improvement of leachate collection in the cell
  • High drainage capacity under heavy loads
  • Control and limitation of the hydraulic head on the liner
  • Mechanical protection of the geomembrane against puncture
  • Easy installation with a single product to unroll
  • Cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution as it replaces granular layers
