The article presents how to improve the strength and effectiveness of horizontal tube drainage according the siltation process. Optimal parameters of construction elements including protective filters which prevent siltation and provide self-cleaning in the case of mechanical siltation are described. Recommendations are given how to protect plastic drainage using both domestic and imported geotextile filters according main physical and technical characteristics of mineral and peat soils.
