What makes this product green?

  • Pre-consumer recycled content
  • Prevents moisture or air quality problems


J-DRain replaces conventional crushed stone and perforated pipe used to provide drainage for a variety of horizontal and vertical construction applications including foundations, retaining walls, sub-slab layers, and green roofs. J-DRain consists of a geosynthetic filter fabric which holds back the soil and allows water to enter and flow through the 3-dimensional dimpled or honeycombed polymeric core. The J-DRain product line includes single-sided composites (200, 400, and 700 series) and multi-sided composites (SWD series), which, depending on the product, may contain some post-industrial recycled polypropylene, polystyrene, or high density polyethylene.

Has anyone tried this system? It sounds good since it's apparantly less likely to get clogged.
