DRAINTUBE FTP - Water and gas drainage for caps


At the end of their operation landfill cells must be closed and covered with topsoil. To allow the ingress of rainwater in the waste mass with a view to guaranteeing its degradation over time, providing the cover with a semi-water barrier with DRAINTUBE® FTP is necessary.

This solution is used on cell caps to drain rainwater and provide the landfill cover with a semi-water barrier.

DRAINTUBE® FTP is the combination, by means of needling, of DRAINTUBE® FT with a polyethylene film to help limit water seepage in waste. The film is 70% needled, meaning that 30% of the surface of the geocomposite is impermeable.

Connection to the collector via the Quick Connect system 

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



  • Filtration of the cover soil layer
  • Effective drainage of rainwater
  • Limitation of the infiltration of rainwater through the final cover: less than 20%
  • Stability of the final cover
  • Easy installation with a single product to unroll
  • Cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution as it replaces granular layers
  • Preservation of the mechanical characteristics of the containment layer
