Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by SGandMG Cheapest and easiest, but leaks at all connections
1, Use the fewest amount of connections.
2, Warning: don't use product connections if water leakage is a concern; for example, if water/humidity is seeping into your basement). The connections all leak. Instead, use one long piece... or a different product.
3, Ensure good slope so that less water will leak out of connections + so that water will exit the tubing rather than stay in the corrugated ribs.
3, Flexible and will mold to any trench and you can easily cut to length with a box cutter.
4, Consider drainage pipe with smooth wall inside to most effectively move water (and any debris) from downspout to exit.
This product is widely used because it's the cheapest; however, all connections leak. The question is, for your purpose, do the leaks matter or not?

I bought 3 sections of this drain pipe to reconnect an existing drainage system that had a section removed. Installation was simple and the pieces connected together very easily.
The built in snap connectors made installing the pipes very easy.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DeeDee613 Right Product for my Job
I had reservations as I ordered over 150 feet of this product for the standing water in my yard, on my patio and around the foundation of my home. NOT THAT IT WOULD WORK but only that I would even get anywhere near finishing this project at all...lol. Well with a garden hose, just a pick ax, garden shovel and a few weak muscles this project is almost completed. One hundred (100) feet done and down to my last fifty (50) feet of flexible tubing left
As the heavy rains will be on there way in about a month or so, I will make this project a complete success with plenty of time to spare.

This review is of the solid pipe, not the perforated pipe which is for completely different applications. I have been using this pipe for years to divert water around my house which sits on a slope using concrete gutters in back which feed into pipes on the side of the house. The system works great but I do not recommended burying the pipe near any tree roots which over time can damage buried pipe. If you are going to bury the pipe near planted areas I recommend you minimize splices and wrap any splices with filter fabric to minimize intrusion of roots and soil. Note, regular maintenance is needed - flush the pipes occasionally and snake immediately if clogged. Once you get a clog and enough soil and gravel backs up in the pipe you might need to dig it up for repair. PS, we have dogs so prefer 4" over the 3" because 4" will easily pass a dog ball through. Black is a good color because it is low visibility and can be installed on the ground surface under a deck or shrubs, which is easier than burying it.

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.

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.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Pipe best super pipe in the world.
A huge black pipe to handle all your irrigation needs. Be advised it doesn't flex very well since its so hard. But if you leave it in the sun it will soften up to make it easier to work with.
