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 put in approx. 500' of this to help with less soil erosion last month- will have to wait & see how long it holds up

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Joe Drain Pipe is Great
The drain pipe is just what I needed. It was a pipe, and it helped with draining water away from house.

This single wall corrugated drain pipe is more flexible than I was led to believe. It can easily be bent into a U shape of 6' across outside to outside of pipe.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DYIer Good product for the price
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 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?

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.
