Round Reinforced Concrete Pipe

Round reinforced concrete pipe offers an impressive record of strength and performance, making it the most economical and reliable choice for drainage materials available today.

Recommended for installations where low, moderate or severe cover and/or live load conditions exist. Retention of shape to minimize stoppage is necessary.
