Quaker Drains is a wide range of products including pool steps, deck drains and paver drains and many custom-designed items.
When putting in a swimming pool, you have to juggle all kinds of little details. In addition to narrowing in on the right design and style, you also have to think about drainage around the pool. Our Quaker drains can be the ideal solution to ensure your pool is the best it can be.
What are Quaker Drains?
Quaker Drains are not a specific style of drain such as a French drain. Rather, Quaker drains are any drain made by the Quaker Plastics Corporation. These drains can come in a range of sizes, shapes, and styles. You can get square Quaker drains as well as paver drains. We also offer 2-inch drains, 3-inch drains, and 4-inch drains as well as other sizes.
You can buy straight lengths of drains to fit together, but you can also buy corner pieces. Corner pieces consist of two Quaker drains at a 90-degree angle fitted to each other. You can also get Quaker drains in different colors. You may want bright white drains, or you may want to go for the subtle coloring of a tan drain to match the concrete surrounding your pool.
How Do Quaker Drains Work Around Your Pool?
Quaker drains provide deck or patio drainage around your pool. Deck drains are long narrow grates that surround the outside of your pool. When water gets splashed outside the pool, it goes through the grates and into these drains. Then, the water moves through the trough or canal under the grate. Depending on what your pool installer recommends, these drains can release the water back into the pool to get pumped through the filtration system, they can drain into your sewage system, or they can connect to the storm water drainage system.
What Size of Quaker Drain Do You Need?
When it comes to size, you need to think about the depth and width of the drain as well as the length. As a general rule of thumb, the more water you anticipate going through the drain, the more depth and width you need. Most Quaker drains are sold in small segments, and you place these segments together as you install the drain. To determine the length you need, decide if you are going to put deck drainage around the whole pool or just along a single side of it. Then, measure that area and order accordingly.
