FLEX-Drain Recognized for Its Innovation and Impact on Landscaping Industry

CLEVELAND, TN--(Marketwire - Mar 13, 2012) - FLEX-Drain, the most flexible and easy-to-use landscape drainage pipe on the market, was recognized as the Specialty Winner in the New Products Contest sponsored by the 2011 Irrigation Show. FLEX-Drain received recognition for its Flexible T/Y Fitting, which eliminates the need to use rigid wyes and tees because it flexes to become either.

This award is a major achievement for FLEX-Drain, which provides innovative drainage solutions in a highly competitive market. The 2011 Irrigation Show's New Products Contest recognized the most innovative new products of the year in the agriculture, golf, specialty and turf/landscape industries. Awards were judged based on innovation, increased water efficiency, ease of use, cost benefits, time savings and design quality.

"Contractors and landscapers typically stick to the products they know because their reputation and their business are dependent on the quality of their work and materials," said Dave Polisky, Director of Sales and Marketing at FLEX-Drain. "Since introducing FLEX-Drain, we have performed a variety of efforts, from building an award-winning website to testimonial videos, and training materials, trying to crack the market. It is great to receive an award like this and be recognized for having an impact on the industry."

FLEX-Drain is a revolutionary landscape drainage pipe solution. Made from 100 percent virgin grade material and seamless extrusion technology, it provides contractors and landscapers with enhanced performance, durability and compatibility with other drainage pipes while requiring less installation time than other drainage systems.

"The Flexible T/Y Fitting is a perfect example of FLEX-Drain's innovation," said Mike Boettner, Engineering Manager and inventor of FLEX-Drain. "Traditional T fittings require landscapers to be very precise when building drainage systems. Our Flexible T/Y Fitting, however, bends to the angle you need, allowing landscapers to be creative with plumbing problems."
