About Mission Clay Products
Since 1950, Mission Clay Products has proudly supplied vitrified clay gravity sewer pipe and related products to the underground construction industry. Mission Clay was founded by Ben Garrett, a plumbing contractor in San Pedro, CA, and remains a family business to this day, manufacturing only in the U.S.A. with locally sourced raw materials. Our pipe, fittings, and couplings can be purchased from a variety of dealers and supply houses throughout the western U.S., and we sell directly to contractors and municipalities.
Why Clay Pipe?
Clay pipe is simply the longest lasting, most sustainable, and environmentally friendly pipe product ever designed. The superior properties of clay pipe in Europe date back over 2000 years, and clay pipe lines installed in the U.S. 200 years ago remain in service today. Many of the largest cities in the country specify vitrified clay for their gravity sewers – New York, Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, Portland, Phoenix, and others recognize the importance of installing infrastructure that lasts, and clay pipe delivers a minimum 100 year service life (the only sewer pipe material to be given such a rating by the US Army Corp of Engineers).
Mission enhances this centuries-tested application by teaming up the durability of vitrified clay pipe with modern urethane compression joints, and the rugged and dependable Band-Seal® coupling – each delivers the tightest seal in the industry. When you see “Mission” on the product, you can count on over 65 years of unsurpassed industry know-how and reputation, and a company that stands behind and believes in the benefit of what we make.
