Subsurface drainage through Subdrain/ Weeping Tile installation and management works by removing excess water from fields. Improved field drainage creates significant benefits for your soil health, environmental impact, and increased crop yield for larger profits year after year.

1. Reduces Excess Water
Subsurface drainage redirects water away from areas with a high water table. This is critical for areas with frequent flooding and soil saturation that can negatively impact crop health.

2. Increases Drought Tolerance
In areas where drought is a challenge, subdrain systems can be used to improve water retention in the soil, or divert excess rainwater to holding ponds for future use.

3. Minimizes Erosion
Soil erosion and degradation can be caused by excess rainfall, resulting in loss of soil volume. This can be magnified by traditional plowing methods. Improved drainage can reduce the impact of heavy rainfalls, helping to preserve soil nutrients and the surrounding areas of your property that can be affected by erosion.

4. Lowers Environmental Impact
Agricultural runoff can be high in dissolved minerals and organic compounds, which can cause issues for neighbouring water supply. A drainage system will ensure that this runoff is redirected to avoid local rivers and ponds, protecting the local ecosystem.

1. Removes Excess Water
Effective subsurface drainage removes excess soil water in the root zone, allowing for improved soil aeration. Prolonged exposure to saturated conditions and poor soil aeration can stress the crop, reducing yield.

2. Increased Workability
Drainage can improve field trafficability, allowing more reliable field access while reducing compaction. Drier soils are less susceptible to compaction than wetter soils.

3. Deeper Roots
Drainage enables crops to establish deeper root systems in fields, allowing greater access to nutrients and soil water.

4. Improved Consistency
Drainage can reduce the year-to-year variability in yields from poorly drained fields. Drainage can increase nitrification (the conversion of ammonia to nitrate) in most soils, providing more nitrate for plant uptake.

Farmers have told us that they expect a 10 – 20% increase in crop yield after investing in proper drainage.

Subdrain installation and manufacturing requirements are changing, and we’re excited to be a part of it. At the Land Improvement Contractors of Ontario (LICO) meeting last month, the organization voted in favour of the drainage industry adopting third party certified pipe by the end of 2024.

LICO is an association of professional contractors, suppliers of drainage pipe and equipment, engineers and municipal drainage superintendents principally concerned with agriculture and the land drainage industry of Ontario, Canada. LICO Contractors are government licensed and principally design and lay tile drains on farms and construct the necessary municipal outlet drains.

More information about LICO can be found on their website here.

What is BNQ Certification?

The Bureau de normalisation du Québec (BNQ) is accredited by the Standards Council of Canada (SCC) as a certification organization. This accreditation ensures a conformity assessment issued by an impartial third party in compliance with international requirements applicable to certification bodies. The BNQ is proud to offer certification programs that have earned it tremendous credibility internationally. As an independent third party, the BNQ insists on exemplary professional ethics that every employee and contractor must follow.

Why Does BNQ Certification Matter?

Certification is a measure of quality, ingenuity, and progress. BNQ certified products must develop and improve in accordance with industry requirements and modernization.

This certification exists to provide customers with certainty that the manufacturer is following the industry proven testing protocols. Confirming that they supply quality products using a consistent manufacturing process.

Both Bluewater Pipes and Fittings have been certified since September 2023. Only nine manufacturers Canada-wide are currently accredited, and only two in Ontario. We’re the official distributor of Bluewater Pipe for the Niagara region.

The certification requirements for drainage products can be found here.

Who Does This Decision Impact?

With LICO endorsing BNQ certification it improves the industry standard to ensure that farmers are purchasing high quality products, bringing increased integrity to the drainage market.

With the expansion of manufacturing capacity of corrugated drainage pipes in Ontario by new businesses, the adoption of a third party certification program ensures all manufacturers, new and old, will be supplying products compliant with proven performance standards. When investing in your farm it’s important to get the best product for long-term reliability and value. BNQ certification polices the quality to ensure your investment is a good one.

We’re proud to be the only official distributor of Bluewater Pipe for the Niagara region. Your BNQ certified subdrain option.
