When it comes to drainage systems, the choice of pipe material is crucial for ensuring durability, longevity, and structural integrity. Del Zotto Products offers a full line of drainage products, including reinforced concrete pipe, which stands out as a superior alternative to other types of pipe for several reasons.

Durability and Structural Soundness

Reinforced concrete pipe is known for its exceptional durability, dependability, and structural soundness. It is engineered to support the weight of the ground around it as well as the live load on the surface above, making it ideal for use in various drainage applications. Compared to other pipe materials, reinforced concrete pipe has a useful life that exceeds expectations, providing long-term performance and reliability. Del Zotto Products of Texas, Inc. is Approved for providing TXDOT structures as required in job specific applications.

Uses of Reinforced Concrete Pipe (RCP)

Stormwater Management: RCP is used in stormwater management systems to collect and convey stormwater runoff from roads, parking lots, and other impervious surfaces to detention basins or other discharge points. The strength and durability of RCP make it ideal for withstanding the hydraulic pressures associated with stormwater flow.

Sewer Systems: RCP is used in sanitary sewer systems to convey wastewater from homes, businesses, and industries to treatment facilities. Its smooth interior surface helps maintain the flow of sewage, reducing the risk of clogs and backups.

Culverts: RCP is used as culverts to convey water under roads, railways, or embankments. Culverts help prevent flooding by allowing water to flow freely under these structures.

Utility Tunnels: RCP can be used in utility tunnels to house and protect utility lines, such as water mains, gas lines, and electrical cables. The strength of RCP helps protect these critical utilities from damage.

Erosion Control: RCP can be used in erosion control applications, such as in the construction of retaining walls or as revetment mattresses to protect shorelines from erosion.

Meets and Exceeds ASTM C-76 Standards

Del Zotto’s reinforced concrete pipe meets and exceeds ASTM C-76 standards, ensuring that it meets the highest quality and performance requirements for drainage systems. This standard specifies the requirements for reinforced concrete pipe used for the conveyance of sewage, industrial wastes, and stormwater drainage.

Regular D-Load Testing

To ensure the quality and performance of its reinforced concrete pipe, Del Zotto Products conducts regular D-load testing in accordance with ASTM C-497. This testing helps verify the structural integrity and load-bearing capacity of the pipe, ensuring that it can withstand the demands of its intended application.

Sizes and Customization Options

Del Zotto Products offers a wide range of sizes for reinforced concrete pipe, including 12”, 15”, 18”, 24”, 30”, 36”, 48”, 54”, 60”, and 72” diameters. This variety of sizes allows for flexibility in designing drainage systems to meet specific project requirements. Additionally, Del Zotto Products offers custom bend and fitting sections, allowing for tailored solutions to fit unique project needs.  In situations where a round concrete pipe is not large enough, Del Zotto can also supply a wide range of square and rectangular box culvert.
