Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by CapnJan Many uses besides drain pipe. For example, passive solar heater for pool!
easily cut (cut between the ribs with a box knife)
Tends to want to stay in a coil, straightening it out is a challenge ;->
If you are using it as drain pipe, it will hold water in the corrugation and breed mosquitoes.
I am using this stuff in a non standard installation. I use it at the first of the season as a solar pool heater. I have a small auxillary Hayward pool pump. I lay this drain pipe out on the deck, and during daylight hours, I run water through it, back into the pool. The 100' will raise the temperature of the water flowing through it, about 1.5 degrees. The pump is model SP1580 - 87 gallons per minute at 10 feet of head. Since the pool sits on the pool deck, and there is an inflow pipe that goes 1' into the water (WITH AN ANTI-ENTRAPMENT piece of pvc attached), the outflow is 2' above the pump, where the drain pipe slides on.
That gives me roughly (very roughly, I do know how to do math) 5k gallons per hour. My pool is 18k gallons. So in a day with 8 hours of direct sunlight, I can raise the temp of the pool approximately 4 degrees, not including the solar gain from the sunlight hitting the pool. Pretty cheap solar heater.
Not a terribly useful review for gutter drain hose, but it is what I used it for. Doesn't leak, but can be torn by sharp objects, so be careful dragging it around, particularly if it is full of water.

I used this pipe for a drainage project in the side yard. In heavy downpours, water eroded part of the front lawn. With two drains and this pipe I have diverted most the water. The pipe is easy to work with and forms to whatever trench you need. I cut it easily with a utility knife.

Laid out well, crush resistant so I could bury it without worry. Tested the line and found it perfect. No more runoff problems!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lefty good value for the price
pipe was perfect for what I needed, I used it for a feed to our pond. the price was good & ship time reasonable. the pipe did have a small hole in it about 10 ft from the end. I was able to tape it shut with electrical tape, so no big deal.

I would recommend this product, I used it to encase water line & electrical wire for burial and it was easy to work with and done the job I needed it to do.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PaulR Received in Damaged Condition
Not "ADS" brand, corrugated sides seem thinner. Damaged, scratched with holes in pipe, didn't notice until I got it home. Too much of a pain to return, will try to seal it myself. Don't buy this product, go with ADS.

Easy to handle and install. Limited connector options, tees, etc. but perfect for simple drainage solutions

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kyle Makes excellent barriers for my remote control car race track
I bought this pipe to create the perimeter and barriers for a remote control car race trace. The piping works great - especially when you zip-tie the hook side of Velcro to it and stick it to a low nap carpet. Will be buying more to expand my race track.
