Sewerage pipe is a channel through which waste materials are eliminated. They are available in a variety of sizes, shapes and are made of various materials. The main objective of sewerage pipes is to carry wastewater or sewage from houses and commercial buildings through the sewerage system for treatment or disposal. Sewer pipes and fittings can get damaged over time and require repair or replacement.

A drainage pipe is a conduit that eliminates water from a particular area. There are various types of drainage pipes; some drain water off the roofs and some are used to drain water from the land. Discarding excess water from land is important as it prevents flooding of basements, damage to structures, soil erosion and the creation of swamp-like conditions around a home or property. Drainage pipes are often made of plastic, concrete, polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or ceramic.

Though sewage pipes and drainage pipes both carry water, there are some differences between the two. While drainage systems are used to eliminate excess water, the sewerage system is a drainage system for discarding wastewater. A drainage system can be manmade or natural (rivers, lakes) and a sewerage system is often manmade. Sewers can easily carry solid waste as well and on the other hand, drainage systems can only eliminate excess water.

Which material drains the most water sand topsoil or mulch?

Mulch is a cover that will either absorb water or let it through, depending on the kind of mulch. A 2-inch layer of wood chips for instance will absorb only a little water and drain most of it. Sand absorbs a bit more, but also lets most of it through. Neither will drain any water if they are not connected to a drainage system of pipes to evacuate the water. It will stay stagnant otherwise. A common material used for drainage systems is a bed of gravel, with porous pipes at a slight inclination onto it, and more gravel put on the sides and top of the pipes. The pipes themselves are usually clothed with some cheap recycled fabric to prevent the dirt from blocking the drainage holes in the pipes. If you do not have a drainage system and simply want to know what material will absorb the most water to prevent most rain floodings, you can use a mulch of peat moss, or even better, incorporate it into the top soil. It absorbs several times its weight in water. It is a bit acidic though, so don't forget to add lime to reestablish the original acidity level of your soil.
