Installing your Drain-Sleeve® filter

On pipes

Installing this product on a drainage pipe is easy. Simply pull the filter over the pipe as if pulling on a sock. There are no seams to sew or tape, making installation quick and easy. If necessary, you can cut off excess Drain-Sleeve® with scissors and save it for your next project.

Drain-Sleeve® works with any perforated drainage pipes, including corrugated polyethylene pipes, PVC pipes, steel pipes, and aluminum pipes.

Drain Sleeve Products
With EZ Loader Applicator
  • Tie a knot in the filter at the outlet end of the pipe
  • Pull the applicator over the length of the pipe, maintaining tension on the sock
  • Remove the cardboard applicator from the pipe
  • Untie the knot in the filter (leaving the outlet end open)

For ease of installation, we recommend using the Preloaded Drain-Sleeve® for 30 ft. (9 m) pipes or longer. Please note that the patented EZ Loader applicator only comes with our Preloaded Drain-Sleeve® products.
